The family of an RAF policeman shot dead in Afghanistan have raised concerns about his level of combat training.
A lawyer acting for the family of Cpl Brent McCarthy, an RAF policeman from Telford, told an inquest into his death that they were concerned he was treated like a "second class citizen" compared with colleagues in the Army.
They said he would get into the firing range in training - but come back without firing a single shot.
Sometimes, he would be left behind in the classroom as no vehicles were available.
