Inquest into the death of hanged officer opens

A Royal Military Police officer who alleged she was raped by two servicemen said other female soldiers then started to bully her, an inquest heard.

Cpl Anne-Marie Ellement, 30, from Bournemouth, was found dead at Bulford Barracks in Wiltshire in October 2011.

An inquest in March 2012 recorded a verdict of suicide, but last year the High Court ordered a new inquest.

Cpl Ellement's sister Sharon Hardy told the inquest Anne-Marie had been left "absolutely traumatised" by the rape.
