Deepcut - The Shame of the British Army

BBC - Cheryl James: Deepcut soldier's death was suicide, coroner rules - "The death of an army recruit from a gunshot wound to the head at Deepcut barracks was suicide, a coroner has ruled. The head of the army has apologised “unreservedly” to the parents of Pte Cheryl James as he vowed the service would be sure to learn from the inquest into her death at Deepcut barracks. Pte Cheryl James, 18, was found dead with a bullet wound to the head in 1995. She was one of four recruits to die at the base in seven years. Coroner Brian Barker QC said the wound was "self-inflicted" and Pte James fired the gun intentionally. Her father said the family did not believe evidence led to verdict."" [more inside]
