The heart of the site is the forum area, including:



    A verdict is expected later in the inquest into the death of a military chief found dead in his swimming pool after he was stripped of his command during a child porn probe.

    Commodore David White, 50, was under investigation for allegedly buying porn over the internet.

    The former Commander of British Forces in Gibraltar downed whisky and sleeping tablets before he died in the pool at his house in Mount Barbary on January 8 this year.

    He had been under investigation - as part of the international police inquiry Operation Ore - since December 15 last year and was stripped of his command less than 24 hours before he died.

    A lap-top computer, discs and a memory chip from a camera belonging to the officer were seized by Ministry of Defence police as part of an inquiry into allegations he had bought pornographic images from a US website.

    On January 7 this year, Mr White was told his position was "becoming untenable" and that word about the inquiry into his affairs was starting to spread.

    When he was instructed to give up his position and return immediately to the UK, his "mental state collapsed" and he was in a "catatonic state of shock", said his brother Rupert, during an inquest hearing in Gibraltar.

    Less than 24 hours later, his fully-clothed and bruised body was found face down at the bottom of his pool.
