An application for a new inquest into the death of an army recruit at Deepcut Barracks has been granted by the Attorney General.
He has given consent for Liberty, acting on behalf of the family of Cheryl James, to apply to the High Court. Cheryl died in 1995, aged 18.
She was undergoing initial training at Deepcut Barracks when she was found dead with a bullet wound between her eye and nose.
Liberty, which represents Cheryl’s parents Des and Doreen James, applied for a new inquest after using the Human Rights Act to access to documents about her death.
An "open" verdict was recorded at the original inquest.
