An inquest has been opened into the death of a police officer facing investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

PC Hassan Ali, aged 44, died on Friday from injuries suffered when he was struck by a car in January.

PC Ali had been referred to the IPCC following four complaints by two people over alleged misconduct linked to the Rotherham child abuse scandal.

The inquest heard PC Ali suffered extensive head injuries in the collision.

Coroner Christopher Dorries said: “Mr Ali was a man of 44, born in Sheffield, a single man living in Ronald Road, Darnall. He was a serving police officer.

“On January 28 he was a pedestrian crossing Staniforth Road, Darnall, and he was struck by a vehicle.

“Emergency services were called and he was taken to Northern General Hospital. He sustained extensive head injuries and died on Friday, February 6.

“I take this opportunity to offer my condolences to the family of the deceased.”

The inquest was adjourned until March 9, when police will inform the hearing if anyone is going to be charged in connection with the crash.
