Pre-inquest review hearing into death of Pte Sean Benton to be held in London

A pre-inquest review hearing into the death of Private Sean Benton will take place in London on Friday 16 June.

Pte Benton died at Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, Surrey in June 1995. The High Court ruled last October that the inquest into his death held in July 1995 should be quashed and a fresh inquest ordered. The Lord Chief Justice has nominated His Honour Judge Peter Rook QC to conduct the fresh investigation and inquest.

The pre-inquest review hearing will be held in public at 2pm on 16 June at the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, London EC4M 7EH. A pre-inquest review hearing is an administrative hearing and no evidence will be heard.
