Foreign and Commonwealth Office statement on the Tunisia Inquests

FCO statement on the Tunisia Inquests following Coroner Judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith announcing his findings at the Royal Courts of Justice today.


An FCO spokesman said:

We welcome the thorough work by the Coroner and his team for more than a year on this important investigation, resulting in today’s conclusions.

The Sousse attack was the largest loss of British life to terrorism since 7/7, and devastated the lives of so many. Our deepest sympathy remains with all those people caught up in this horrific attack and we hope that the Inquest process has been of some help to the families.
