On Tuesday afternoon, the families of the thirty Britons killed the Tunisian terror attack, who were aged between 19 and 80, gathered at London's Royal Courts of Justice to hear the coroner's conclusions at the end of a six-week long hearing.

On Tuesday afternoon, the families of the thirty Britons killed the Tunisian terror attack, who were aged between 19 and 80, gathered at London's Royal Courts of Justice to hear the coroner's conclusions at the end of a six-week long hearing.

Thirty-eight people, including Walsall supporters Charles 'Patrick' Evans, his son Adrian Evans and Grandson Joel Richards, were killed when an Islamist gunman opened fire at a hotel in Sousse in June 2015.

The inquest examined whether the UK government and travel firms failed to protect British tourists. The coroner described the Tunisian police's response as at best "shambolic" and at worst "cowardly".

Families wanted the coroner, Judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith, to consider whether neglect was a factor in their deaths, but he ruled this out because the law regarding neglect did not cover tourists on holiday. He did however agree that all thirty Britons were unlawfully killed.
