Pictures: With Impeccable Timing The Jamie Janes Inquest Begins

WITH impeccable timing, soldiers from the Grenadier Guards arrive at Brighton County Court for the inquest into the death of Guardsman Jamie Janes, 20, who was fatally wounded while on a foot patrol near Nad e-Ali district centre in Helmand, Afghanistan, on October 5 last year.
