A coroner has called on the Ministry of Defence to review its care of vulnerable soldiers after he ruled that bullying and the effects of an alleged rape were factors in the death of a soldier in Wiltshire.
The inquest found that Anne-Marie Ellement hanged herself at Bulford Barracks two years after she claimed two soldiers had raped her. Today her family said the army should have done more to protect her. Martin Dowse has been following the case.
The Duchess of Cornwall has visited the Royal Colonel 4th Battalion, The Rifles during their pre-deployment training. The Duchess has also officially opened the new Officers' Mess and joined soldiers and their families at a reception.
The family of a military police officer who was found hanged at her Wiltshire barracks have been told they must wait another year for her inquest. Anne-Marie Ellement died in October 2011 at Bulford Camp on Salisbury Plain.
She had claimed she had been raped by two colleagues at a previous posting. Her family have always said she wasn't given the right support from her commanding officers.
