An inquest into the death of a zoo keeper at a Cumbrian wild-life park is expected to be opened and adjourned this week.
24-year-old Sarah McClay died after being mauled by Sumatran tigers at the South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton in Furness.
Cumbria Police are carrying out an inquiry on behalf of the Coroner.
A police spokesman said:
"A complex system of gates at the enclosure meant the animals and their keepers should remain separated at all times, but on this occasion the system failed, with fatal consequences."
