A coroner has ruled that two children who were stabbed to death by their father were unlawfully killed.
The inquest heard how Ben Pedersen, 7, and sister Freya, 6, were found stabbed on a dirt track near Newton Stacey near Andover.
The body of their father Michael was found alongside them.
The court heard how Mr Pedersen, who served in the Household Calvary and survived an IRA bomb attack in Hyde Park in 1982, had been depressed after his marriage had broken down.
Coroner Grahame Short told the inquest that the deaths of children were "beyond comprehension" as he recorded that Ben and Freya were unlawfully killed. He recorded a suicide verdict on Mr Pedersen
