The inquest into the death of BBC journalist Kate Peyton has found a verdict of unlawful killing. The coroner said he would write to the BBC under ‘rule 43,’ which allows a coroner to suggest further action he/she believes necessary. The coroner emphasised that he was not criticising the BBC, and that his letter would not imply liability on the part of the corporation, the Guardian reports.
