Rogue Afghan attack: Inquest for UK soldiers killed

An inquest into the deaths of five British soldiers in an attack by a rogue Afghan policeman in 2009 has resumed in Wiltshire.

They were shot at a police checkpoint in Nad Ali in Helmand province.

The suspect, named only as Gulbuddin, opened fire with a machine-gun from a rooftop before escaping from the scene.

The soldiers were Warrant Officer Class 1 Darren Chant, Sgt Matthew Telford, Guardsman Jimmy Major, Cpl Steven Boote, and Cpl Nicholas Webster-Smith.

Caroline Wyatt reports.
