Brecon inquest will reveal soldiers' cause of death

Inquests into the deaths of two Army reservists are due to be opened and adjourned this afternoon by Powys coroner Louise Hunt.

It is anticipated that a brief medical cause of death will be read into the public record for both cases.

Although the full facts of the case will not be heard, the hearing will see the issuing of interim death certificates - allowing the bereaved families to begin funeral preparations.
