Katy Skerrett named as new Gloucestershire coroner

A new senior coroner for Gloucestershire has been appointed.

Barrister Katy Skerrett will step up from her current position as the county's assistant deputy coroner.

She takes over from Alan Crickmore, a solicitor who was jailed for eight years for stealing £2m from clients.

Sally Bye, head of registration and coroner services, said Mrs Skerrett "will provide leadership and a forward-thinking approach to the coroner services".

It has not yet been confirmed on what date Mrs Skerrett will start in the post.
