Adam Walker of 7BR represented Mrs Nicola Urquhart at an inquest touching on the death of her son Corrie McKeague.
SAC Corrie McKeague, an airman at RAF Honington, disappeared on 24 September 2016 following a night out in Bury St Edmunds. He was last seen on CCTV at 3:25am entering an area not covered by cameras but then disappeared. The possible explanations for his disappearance were investigated by the Suffolk Constabulary with various hypotheses considered as to what might have happened to him.
Following an inquest which lasted 2½ weeks a jury returned a narrative conclusion that he had climbed into a 1100L bin, which was then tipped into a Biffa waste disposal lorry before its contents were crushed and taken to landfill.
The jury concluded that Corrie’s death was contributed to by ineffective checking of the bin by the lorry operative, an ineffective lock on the bin, by Biffa having failed to provide their operative with equipment needed to perform an appropriate check of the bin and by the ineffective size and placing of the viewing window on the side of the vehicle preventing the operative having a clear view into the lorry’s hopper.
