MP wants Deepcut 'dossier' probe

An MP is calling for a dossier of abuse allegations at the Deepcut Barracks to be re-examined as an inquest into a teenage recruit's death approaches its conclusion.

Pte Cheryl James, 18, from Llangollen, Denbighshire, was found with a bullet wound to her head in November 1995.

She was one of four soldiers who died at the Surrey barracks between 1995 and 2002 amid claims of bullying and abuse.

Bridgend MP Madeleine Moon, a member of the Commons Defence Select committee, told Tuesday's Week In Week Out programme she wanted the defence secretary to ask the army and Surrey Police what happened to soldiers who were accused by other recruits of rape, sexual and physical assaults and bullying at the base between 1995 and 2002.

A second inquest into Pte James's death is due to end at Woking Coroner's Court on Friday.
