Inquest date for shooting massacre

A date for the inquests into the deaths of mass killer Derrick Bird and the 12 victims he gunned down has been set.

The hearing, scheduled to last up to six weeks, will take place in Workington, Cumbria, from March 1.

Taxi driver Bird, 52, went on a shooting rampage as he drove around west Cumbria on June 2 last year, before he shot himself.

HM Coroner for North and West Cumbria David Roberts will hear the joint inquests at the Energus conference centre.
