Inquest opens into men hit by train
An inquest into the deaths of two men hit by a speeding train while apparently fleeing the scene of a warehouse raid on a quad bike takes place today.
Trevor Davies, 20, and David Cooper, 24, both from Rumney, near Cardiff, south Wales, were killed in the early hours of December 9 last year.
They died after the quad bike they were riding was struck by an empty stock train travelling from a Cardiff depot at up to 70mph.
Two men riding a second quad bike along railway lines were injured and fled the scene before later being arrested by police.
Liam Xeureb, 22, and Anthony Thomas, 23, both of Cardiff, were later charged with burglary and endangering safety on the railways.
They are accused of stealing £40,000 worth of jackets from the Go Outdoors site. Both deny all charges and await a trial date.
The inquest takes place at the Coroner's Court at Cardiff Central Police Station from 10am.
