Lee Bonsall inquest: Coroner calls for mental health review

A former soldier found hanged gave no indication he was intending to harm himself, an inquest has heard.

The body of Lee Bonsall, 24, was found at home in Tenby by his wife in 2012.

Mr Bonsall's family believe he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a friend he was serving with in Afghanistan was shot dead.

Pembrokeshire coroner Mark Layton, recording a narrative verdict, is to ask for a review of mental health procedures for soldiers.

Widow Serena Bonsall said soldiers' medical records should be passed to their GPs as a matter of course to make them aware of potential problems.
