PARENTS of a vulnerable young man from Rossendale are still searching for answers over their son’s death on holiday in Egypt.

Greg Roult, 27, died after suffering a seizure while he was staying at the five-star Hotel Sonesta in Sharm-el-Sheikh in March 2015, with his two carers employed by Lancashire County Council.

He was found lying at the bottom of the pool.

Paramedics were called to the resort but he died later that day in hospital.

A fourth pre-inquest review hearing into Greg’s death took place at Preston Coroners Court yesterday.

There are still a number of questions to be answered relating to Greg’s care and supervision while in the pool, medical support available at the resort, safety aspects of the pool, including lifeguard support and the chain of events from calling an ambulance to Greg’s hospital admission, the family’s legal representatives said.

Kelly Darlington, solicitor for the Roult family, said: “Greg’s parents, Stephen and Angela are still in search of answers with regard to the circumstances in which Greg died.

“They have concerns about the level of care and supervision provided to Greg on the holiday by Lancashire County Council, health and safety at the Sonesta Hotel, which was the hotel Greg was staying at whilst on his Thomas Cook holiday, and the medical treatment provided to him by the authorities in Egypt.

“The family received no direct contact from Thomas Cook at all and they did not acknowledge their loss until a letter was sent from Farleys Solicitors to the chief executive Peter Fankhauser on their behalf.

“We hope that the inquest process can tell us more about how Greg died and whether his death could have been prevented”.

A Thomas Cook spokesman said: “We would like to express our deepest condolences to the parents of Mr Roult for the tragic death of their son and assure them that we are doing all we can to assist the Coroner with the investigation.

“We have written to the lawyers of Mr Roult and Ms Holt and asked them to pass on our condolences, not having their direct contact details ourselves.

“We would like again to reiterate our deepest sympathies and our offer of any support.”

Mr Roult’s father Stephen previously told the Lancashire Telegraph how his son suffered brain injuries at birth and had been awarded substantial compensation as a result.

His care was overseen by a charity called Chance for Life before being transferred to the county council in August 2013.

A spokesman for Lancashire county council said: “As proceedings are still active we are unable to comment further at this time.”
