Evidence on barracks life will not be given at hearing this week into death of Private Geoff Gray, letter claims
An inquest into the death of a teenage army recruit has been plunged into controversy ahead of its opening this week. The Ministry of Defence has been forced to deny claims that key internal reports cataloguing life at Deepcut barracks, where four trainee soldiers died from bullet wounds over a seven-year period, will not be submitted as evidence at the inquest into the death of Private Geoff Gray.
The 17-year-old died from two gunshot wounds to the head sustained while on guard duty in September 2001. As with the three other trainee deaths, the original inquest recorded a verdict of suicide.
