Inquest into parachute tragedy to begin
An inquest will open today into the deaths of two people who died after they became entangled in their parachutes during a routine jump.
Brian Laithwaite, 65, and Emma Bramley, 31, were parachuting at Langar Airfield in Nottinghamshire on Friday afternoon when the accident happened.
They were using separate parachutes when they became tangled, causing them to plummet to the ground.
Mr Laithwaite, from Wigan in Lancashire, and Ms Bramley, from Nottingham, were both described as experienced parachutists.
An inquest into the deaths will open at Nottingham Coroner's Court at 10am.
