Human rights warning over Brecon soldiers' SAS deaths

A coroner examining the deaths of two soldiers during SAS selection training warned that the Ministry of Defence could face investigation under the Human Rights Act.

Edward Maher, 31, and Craig Roberts, 24, collapsed in soaring temperatures while on the training regime on the Brecon Beacons.

The cause remains "unascertained".

Powys coroner Louise Hunt said "right to life" will play an important part in the inquest.

Jenny Rees reports while Tomos Dafydd in the Wales Today studio speaks to legal commentator Joshua Rozenberg about the implications of the warning.
