Shoreham inquest 'may be delayed'

Stuart Maisner

The West Sussex Coroner has told the BBC that the pre-inquest hearing into the Shoreham air crash, due on 19 September, is likely to be postponed. This, in turn, could lead to a delay in the inquest.

At present the inquest is still booked for March, but it depends on the outcome of the hearing. Sussex Police then needs its experts to look at any evidence that emerges, and the Crown Prosecution Service will need to make a decision on whether any prosecution is appropriate.
