Inquests are due to begin today into the deaths of thirty British tourists in Tunisia, including a woman from Gateshead.

Lisa Burbidge was killed in the beach attack near Sousse in June 2015, when a gunman opened fire.

The 66-year-old grandmother of four lived in Whickham. Her death prompted an outpouring of grief and sympathy within her community.

The inquests of those who died will take place at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. Lawyers representing relatives of the victims say they want to know whether more could have been done to protect their loved ones.
