There are to be further investigations after a Kent soldier was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan. Sapper Mark Antony Smith, who served with Maidstone's 3-6 Engineers, died in Helmand when a smoke shell fell short of its target.
But poor record-keeping by the MoD is being blamed for the inquest's inability to find out precisely why that happened. David Johns reports, speaking to Sapper Smith's mother, Helen Smith, and 36 Engineers' Captain Douglas Brain.
