Bourke St Mall findings set for delivery

·1-min read

The coroner who conducted an inquest into the Bourke St Mall rampage will hand down her findings next Thursday.

Six people died and 27 others were injured when James Gargasoulas mowed down pedestrians in Melbourne's CBD in January 2017.

Gargasoulas was jailed for at least 46 years in February last year for the murders and for injuring dozens of people in what was described by the sentencing judge as one of Australia's "worst examples of mass murder".

Coroner Jacqui Hawkins heard evidence late last year and again this year from police members, civilians and families of the people killed.

The inquest examined the out of sessions bail hearing that allowed Gargasoulas to be freed, six days before the massacre.

It also looked into the police response in the lead-up to the event and on the day, and any opportunities for ways to prevent a repeat event.

It's been recommended that police review training policies including its hostile vehicle policy and coordination between different police units.

Police lawyers said there had been many reforms since.
