The parents of a soldier who was found dead at her barracks in Surrey nearly twenty years ago, have welcomed a decision to allow them to apply for a fresh inquest into her death.
Private Cheryl James who was eighteen was found with a bullet wound to her head at Deepcut Barracks in 1995. The original inquest recorded an open verdict. Liberty, which is acting on behalf of Cheryl's family, has secured access to documents held by the authorities.
ITV News spoke to Cheryl's father Des James about the decision.
