New Deepcut Inquest

New Deepcut Inquest

The High Court today ordered a second inquest into the death of Sean Benton, a recruit at Deepcut Barracks in 1995. The order was made under section 13 of the Coroners Act 1988, following an application on behalf of Sean’s family,  who obtained the Attorney General’s fiat in July this year. News coverage relating to the new inquest may be found here.

Katherine Hardcastle acts for the family of Sean Benton (as a led junior), instructed by Liberty, the campaigning organisation.
