Dear Ministry of Defence,
Please could you kindly release the 2012 inquest report into the death of Officer Cadet Harry Whitworth whom died during an Skydiving Adventure Training exercise in 2011. There will be another trip to the same location this year and it would be useful to see the factors that lead to the incident occurring.
