After a six year wait, the inquest into the tragic death of Greg Roult is finally set to commence on Monday.

Greg, who had complex needs and epilepsy, was 27-years-old when he suffered a seizure at Hotel Sonesta in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt in March 2015.

He was found lying at the bottom of the pool, but despite attempts to save him, he died later that day in hospital.

Greg, who started having epileptic seizures as a child, was accompanied on his holiday by two carers, employed by Lancashire County Council.

Greg’s parents described their son as a fun-loving character who loved music and swimming, but more than five years on from his death, they are still seeking answers as to what exactly happened on that tragic day, including concerns over his care and supervision whilst in the pool, the medical support available at the resort, and the chain of events from calling an ambulance to Greg’s hospital admission.

The jury at the inquest will hear from witnesses including medical experts, Greg’s carers, and hotel guests.

However, due to the administration of Thomas Cook, they will not be participating in the inquest.

Solicitor for Greg’s parents Kelly Darlington said: “Stephen and Angela are still in search of answers with regard to the circumstances in which their son died.

"They have had to wait almost six years to find out what exactly happened, largely due to the difficulties the authorities have had in getting information from Egypt.”

The inquest, which is expected to last for five days, will take place at Preston Coroner's Court.
