Gavin Williams inquest: Soldier 'unaware' of beasting rules

A former Army corporal has said former colleagues lied about using unofficial physical punishments on soldiers.

John Edwards told the inquest of Gavin Williams, 22, from Hengoed, Caerphilly county, he was unaware disciplinary rules had changed when he carried out part of the young soldier's beasting.

Pte Williams died from heart failure at Lucknow Barracks in Tidworth, Wiltshire, on 3 July 2006.

Paul Heaney reports.
