Coroner rules Deepcut soldier's death as suicide

The Coroner at the second inquest into the death of Private Cheryl James at the Deepcut barracks in Surrey said the army failed in its duty of care.

Judge Brian Barker QC ruled that the 18-year-old had killed herself and criticised what he called the "sexualised" atmosphere at the barracks.
