CCTV shows Tanya Day taken into custody before sustaining a fatal brain injury

Footage of Tanya Day’s arrival at Castlemaine police station on 5 December 2017 has been played at an inquest into her death. Day, a 55-year-old woman in activewear and a bright pink jacket, was escorted through the corridor of the police station by three bulky officers. She cried at the charge counter while being logged in to custody and was stripped of her jacket and shoes, both of which contained cords that could be considered a ligature risk. The on-duty officers described Day as ‘unsteady on her feet’. Soon after being taken into custody the Yorta Yorta woman suffers a significant fall. She suffers a brain haemorrhage and dies weeks later
