Deepcut: Pte Sean Benton's brother and sister tell of inquest 'relief'

The brother and sister of a soldier who was found dead at an army barracks in Surrey 21 years ago have spoken of their relief after a fresh inquest was given the go ahead.

Pte Sean Benton, 20, from Hastings, was found with five bullet wounds to his chest in June 1995 while on guard at a perimeter fence at Deepcut.

His twin, Tony Benton, and sister, Tracy Lewis, had campaigned for a fresh inquest after his death was originally ruled as suicide.
