Leads 'not followed' in Deepcut deaths investigation

Surrey Police officers failed to follow vital leads during the investigation into the deaths of four young soldiers at Deepcut Barracks, according to a newly-released report seen by the BBC.

One policeman claimed that there was pressure from senior officers to conclude that the deaths were suicides.

The privates who died were Sean Benton, from Hastings, East Sussex, Cheryl James, from Llangollen, Denbighshire, Geoff Gray, from Seaham, County Durham, and James Collinson, from Perth.

June Kelly reports.
