The inquests into the deaths of 30 British people in the Tunisian beach terror attacks continue to hear evidence about East Midlanders today.
Details about Carly Lovett from Lincolnshire and John Stollery from Walesby in Nottinghamshire are being given to the hearing.
They were killed when gunman Seifeddine Rezgui went on a killing spree, shooting tourists in Sousse on June 26 2015.
John Stollery's family say they hope the inquest will raise awareness of what happened, and has outcomes which will help "lessons being learnt".
They believe "proactive changes" are required to make sure the same does not happen again.

The Iraqi born Stratford Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi says he is in favour of President Trump being given a state visit to Britain.
It comes despite the controversy over the President's travel ban on seven nations which the MP feared would mean that having been born in Baghdad he could not travel to see his two sons who are studying in the US.
But recent clarification from the Foreign office confirms the ban does not apply to British citizens. The MP says he has no objection to a State visit from the President.
Gatherings are taking place in Bristol, Cheltenham, Exeter and Falmouth. People in the region will be demonstrating against the travel ban.Read the full story ›

An Iraqi-born Conservative MP who was initially blocked from entering the US under new travel rules has said Donald Trump's immigration ban "feeds the ideology" of extremism.
Nadhim Zahawi told ITV's Good Morning Britain that while he supported a tightening of US immigration rules last year, a total ban was "discriminatory", "wrong" and "counter-productive".
The Stratford-on-Avon MP condemned the US policy on Saturday after being advised by lawyers that he and his wife would be barred from visiting their sons, who are studying at American universities.
I'm a British citizen & so proud to have been welcomed to this country. Sad to hear ill be banned from the USA based on my country of birth
It was clarified late Sunday that British citizens with dual nationality - such as Mr and Mrs Zahawi - will be able to travel to the US, though they will face heightened checks should they fly in from one of the seven countries on the banned list.
