According to this report, the independent forensic expert, Frank Swann, hired by the families to look into the deaths of the shot soldiers, has concluded that is "highly unlikely" that many of the bullet wounds on four soldiers who died at the army's Deepcut barracks between 1995 and 2002 were self-inflicted.
I watched the forensic scientist Frank Swann giving an interview on TV today. He said that his experiments indicated that, in most cases, the soldiers would have needed arms fifteen feet long to achieve their injuries had they been self-inflicted.

Both the army and the police had earlier concluded that, in all four cases, there was nothing suspicious and that the deaths were suicide. However, at least one inquest verdict had been 'open'. Unsurprisingly, Frank Swann's report has prompted police to delay the release of their own findings.

Such a shame - we get so little real comedy these days.
