One Direction star Louis Tomlinson's sister accidentally overdosed on cocktail of drugs

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson's sister accidentally overdosed on cocktail of drugs One Direction star Louis Tomlinson’s sister Felicite died after taking an accidental overdose of drugs, an inquest has heard. The 18-year-old aspiring fashion deisgner was pronounced dead inside her London flat on March 13th this year after taking a “perfect storm” of cocaine, Xanax and oxycodone. Felicite - known to friends as Fizzy - was found unresponsive with “white lips” the morning after taking cocaine with a friend and medics were unable to save her.

The Loughgall Ambush took place on 8 May 1987 in the village of Loughgall , County Armagh, Northern Ireland. An eight-man unit of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA)

How long an inquest takes will vary. Some inquests may last a few hours, while others may take weeks Families attending an inquest at the Coroners Court of Victoria can choose to be legally If a coroner has accepted final submissions, the coroner should complete the finding within six month

A fresh inquest into the deaths of eight IRA men and a civilian shot dead by soldiers at Co Armagh in 1987 could take six months to complete.

The case is one of dozens that are the subject of a series of preliminary hearings over three weeks at the Royal Courts of Justice in Belfast.

The Department of Justice plans to release £55 million over six years to deal with 52 legacy inquests involving 93 deaths.

Presiding coroner Mrs Justice Keegan will determine in which order outstanding legacy inquests should be heard following the ongoing preliminary hearings.

On Wednesday, submissions were made over the state of readiness of the case around the killings at Loughgall on May 8, 1987.

Most inquests are completed within six months of the death. The Coroner will open the inquest , confirm the identity of the The Coroner ’s Court is six miles from the centre of Bristol in the village of Flax Bourton. All witnesses must swear to tell the truth when giving evidence in the Coroner ’s Court.

Nine men were shot by the SAS as an IRA unit had been preparing to carry out an attack on a police station.

Eight had been among the IRA unit, while civilian Anthony Hughes, who was travelling through the village in a car, was also shot.

An inquest previously took place into the killings in 1995.

Hugh Southey QC, acting for the Loughgall families, pressed that the case be one of the earliest heard, telling Belfast Coroner’s Court that due to an ongoing civil case, much of the material had already been gathered.

Mrs Justice Keegan responded: “I have a tranche of cases and I obviously can’t deal with them all immediately, so I am trying to work out a system. Every family that has come in front of me wants to get their case on, it’s common to everybody, I am sympathetic and I understand it.

Allergy death: Coroner says victim was 'reassured by menu'

Allergy death: Coroner says victim was 'reassured by menu' A teenager with a dairy allergy who died after eating chicken coated with buttermilk at a Byron Burger restaurant was "reassured by the wording of the menu", a coroner has ruled. Owen Carey had a fatal reaction after eating a chicken burger while celebrating his 18th birthday with his family on 22 April 2017. He collapsed less than an hour after first experiencing an allergic reaction to his meal and was taken to hospital where he died. Southwark Coroner's Court heard how Mr Carey, of Crowborough, East Sussex, did not realise the chicken had been marinated because the buttermilk ingredient was not listed on the menu.

Months also went by before inquests were opened and relatives say phone calls to the office went The Sun has been told that up to 14 staff left their jobs because of Mr Inyama’s behaviour. But it was not until October 2016 that the coroner was suspended — and only then because of his behaviour

He told the inquest : "It would appear that there were three separate exchanges of gunfire between Mr Saunders and "He was taken from the house to the pavement outside where medical support was provided, but despite the The coroner , Dr Paul Knapman, adjourned the inquest until September 9.

“But your case is slightly different because of two factors, discovery seems to be well under way in related civil proceedings, and number two some decision has to be made about how the sensitive material is managed and what the right form is which will involve a legal debate.”

Counsel for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) Peter Coll QC said following discussion, it has been estimated the inquest could take between three to six months to hear.

Speaking outside court, Mairead Kelly, whose brother Patrick was one of eight IRA men killed, urged Mrs Justice Keegan to rule that the new inquest is ready to commence immediately, stating the families have been waiting for a public airing of what happened for 32 years.

The UVF murder of Catholic couple Charles and Teresa Fox at their home near Moy, Co Tyrone, in September 6, 1992 was the second of the six cases mentioned on Wednesday.

Next was the killing of Thomas Mills, who was shot dead by the IRA in west Belfast on July 18, 1972.

Mrs Justice Keegan will consider a number of factors in timetabling the inquests, including the availability of outstanding documents from the PSNI and MoD, as well as parallel civil court proceedings and Police Ombudsman investigations.

She sounded a warning to the MoD and PSNI to ensure there are no delays in retrieving material, warning that lessons should have been learned from the ongoing inquest into the killing of 10 people across three days at Ballymurphy.

“I am not going to have delays… it is not helpful to anybody not least the families or the court,” she said.

“That message should go out.”

The series of preliminary hearings will continue to October 4.
