Deepcut inquest, General, HP

Sean Benton inquest to begin on 24 January in Woking

The inquest into the death of Private Sean Benton will begin at 2pm on Wednesday 24 January.

Pte Benton died at Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, Surrey in June 1995. The High Court ruled in October 2016 that the inquest into his death held in July 1995 should be quashed and a fresh inquest ordered.

The new inquest will be conducted by His Honour Peter Rook QC and will be held in Court 3, HM Coroner’s Court, Station Approach, Woking, Surrey GU22 7AP.

A room near Court 3 will be reserved for members of the media and public who can’t be accommodated in the courtroom. A live, real-time stream of proceedings – all the evidence to be considered as part of the inquest – will be screened in this room.
