A string of errors by psychiatric staff allowed a convicted killer to claim two more victims, a report will say today.
Peter Bryan killed Brian Cherry at his East London flat and ate parts of his brain just hours after his discharge from a London mental health unit.
The schizophrenia patient, now 39, later strangled a man at Broadmoor hospital after staff apparently failed to monitor him.
Today, an independent inquiry is expected to highlight serious failings by staff who believed Bryan was “no longer a danger”.
The findings are based on two separate reports which NHS officials have taken years to publish.
Criticism will be targeted at social workers who judged Bryan safe enough to be freed when he was already guilty of hammering a woman to death.
The first investigation focuses on mistakes by NHS East London, which runs the Newham Centre for Mental Health.
