The family of a young man who was killed when a tyre exploded in his face reacted angrily today as an inquest jury returned a verdict of accidental death.
Matthew Hoare died seven years ago. The tragedy happened as he fitted a tyre to a digger in Canterbury. At the inquest - his employers were asked a number questions about health and safety - and Matthew's training - which they declined to answer.
Tom Savvides was at the hearing in Sandwich. His report includes interviews with Carolyn Hoare, Matthew's mother; Nick Fairweather, the family's solicitor; and Andrew Roach, the solicitor for Matthew's employers.
