Royal Marine killed in Iraq let down by CoC - Coroner

A Royal Marine killed in Iraq in 2003 died as a result of 'serious military failings', according the the Coroner who held the inquest.

The BBC News website reports:

A coroner hearing the case of a Royal Marine killed by "friendly fire" in Iraq has ruled his death was caused by serious failings by the military.
Christopher Maddison, 24, from Scarborough, was killed by his own side during a river patrol in 2003.

Coroner Andrew Walker said the marine, based in Plymouth, had been let down by those in command.
Very sad indeed.

I'm also left wondering who is responsible for failing the families of those killed by not ensuring inquests are held within a reasonable time, not 3 years after death.
