Lincolnshire assistant coroner retires after 25 years

The assistant coroner for Lincolnshire, Richard Marshall, has announced his retirement after 25 years in the role.

Mr Marshall was appointed in April 1994 and presided over inquests across the county for a quarter of a century.

His last inquest was the case of Billingborough Royal Marine James Holloway, 25, who shot himself while on duty on a Royal Navy supply ship in Dubai.

At the conclusion of the inquest last week Mr Marshall announced his retirement.

Mr Marshall said the tragedy was sadly typical of many of the cases he had covered and expressed his condolences, "as always," to Mr Holloway's family.

Mr Marshall also worked as a long serving solicitor and was a familiar face at Lincoln Magistrates Court.

Coroners for the county are appointed by Lincolnshire County Council.
