"More should have been done to protect bullied soldier"

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.
