The inquest into the death of six soldiers killed in an explosion in Afghanistan has heard the armoured vehicle they were travelling in, burst into flames after it was struck by an improvised explosive device.
The Warrior infantry fighting vehicle was on patrol in Lashkar Gar, at 6.40pm on March 6, 2012 when it struck an IED.
The blast under the right side of the vehicle tipped it onto its left hand side. The vehicle's turret burst into flames detonating ammunition. Debris from the explosion was scattered up to 400 metres away.
