Two families of Army Red Caps killed by an Iraqi mob, are to sue the Ministry of Defence for negligence. Corporal Russell Aston from Swadlincote in Derbyshire and Lance Corporal Thomas Keys from Solihull were killed alongside four other Royal Military Police officers.
The case which is the first of its kind, follows a judgement by the Supreme Court last month which ruled that soldiers at war are covered by human rights laws and are owed a duty of care. Kate Fisher reports.
