Inquest to start on Egypt pair’s deaths
The inquests into the deaths of a British couple who died on a Thomas Cook holiday in Egypt will be opened next week.
John and Susan Cooper, from Burnley in Lancashire, died on 21 August while staying at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel in the Red Sea resort of Hurghada.
Their daughter Kelly Ormerod has said she has “no faith” in the Egyptian authorities, which reported that E.coli bacteria killed her parents.
The inquests will be opened at Preston Coroner’s Court on Tuesday.
