Kathleen Thompson and her family.

A former soldier said he discussed the 1971 shooting of a Londonderry mother-of-six with the colleague believed to have fired the fatal shots ‘once the persecutions of the soldiers started’ some years later.

The witness identified as KTM 25 told the resumed Kathleen Thompson inquest that he served alongside and was friendly with Soldier D.

The inquest was told by KTM 25 that he could not remember the incident when Mrs Thompson was shot.
