Between 1995 and 2002, four young Army recruits died from gunshot wounds at Deepcut barracks in Surrey.

The Army insisted the deaths were all suicides, but the families disagreed. Initial inquests returned three open verdicts and one of suicide.

Calls for an inquiry came as early as 2002 and a police investigation followed, along with a review of Army training procedures.

But following a leaked police report, allegations of bullying and harassment continued.

Now a new podcast for Audible, called Death at Deepcut, has further revelations.

Newsnight’s UK Editor Katie Razzall is first to report the new developments.
