RAF C17 brings British dead back home from Tunisia

Eight of 29 Britons confirmed dead in the terror attack in Tunisia were flown into the UK on an RAF C17.

The bodies arrived Brize Norton, Oxfordshire on Wednesday and was bound for West London for a post mortem examination.

The relatives of the dead were identified as Adrian Evans, Charles (known as Patrick) Evans and Joel Richards, as well as Carly Lovett, Stephen Mellor, John Strollery, Dennis Thwaites and Elaine Thwaites.

A statement released on behalf of Suzanne Richards for the Evans and Richards families said:” We are a very small and normal family, but nothing will ever be normal again.”

“My son Joel, dad Pat and brother Adrian were our rocks and we were all heart broken and devastated and will never get over losing them.”

The Chief coroner for England and Wales, Judge Peter Thornton QC, said there would be “one investigation and one inquest for each deceased, although, in view of the circumstances of the killings, the inquests are likely to be held together.”

A minutes silence will be observed across the country at noon on Friday in memory of the victims.

Tunisia authorities have arrested several people on suspicion of helping gunman Seifeddin Rezgui and at least two other suspects are wanted by police.
