Borneo student deaths inquest opens

An inquest into the deaths of two medical students stabbed in Borneo is due to be held today.

Neil Dalton, from Ambergate, Derbyshire, and Aidan Brunger, of Kent, were killed after a row in a bar while working at a hospital in Kuching on August 6.

Four local men have admitted the killings, according to Malaysian Police.

A fifth man, aged 55, has also been arrested in connection with the incident.

The hearing into the deaths of the two 22-year-old Newcastle University students will be held at the Derby and South Derbyshire Coroner's Court.

Relatives of Mr Brunger paid tribute to a "wonderful" young man, saying the murder has "left a massive hole" in their lives.

The family of Mr Dalton spoke of their disbelief and paid tribute to the "caring, thoughtful and witty young man".
