Shoreham Air Disaster Pre-Inquest Review Postponed

West Sussex senior coroner Penelope Schofield postpones pre-inquest review as Air Accidents Investigation Branch has not yet published its final report.

A pre-inquest review due to take place in the next few weeks into the Shoreham air disaster, in which 11 men died, has been postponed.

The hearing was originally scheduled to be held on Monday September 19 - nearly a month after the first anniversary of the crash.

It has now emerged West Sussex senior coroner Penelope Schofield has postponed the review as the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has not yet published its final report.

A spokesman for her office said: ``The families have been informed and information about the new date will be available soon.''

The crash happened when a vintage Hawker Hunter crashed onto the A27 during the Shoreham Airshow on August 22 last year.

Its pilot, Andrew Hill, 52, is being investigated for possible manslaughter by gross negligence. He has been questioned voluntarily under caution by police.
