Deepcut family's hope for justice

The family of Pte Sean Benton have spoken of their happiness and relief that a fresh inquest can take place into his death at Deepcut barracks 21 years ago.

The 20-year-old was found with five bullet wounds to his chest in June 1995 while on guard at a perimeter fence.

An original inquest into his death recorded a verdict of suicide.

His family applied for a new hearing after using the Human Rights Act to access evidence held by police.

His twin, Tony Benton, and sister, Tracy Lewis, said they hoped justice would now be done, in an exclusive interview with the BBC.
