THE inquest into the death of teenager Jack Gudge could be held in a different location to "ensure the safety of all involved".

Jack, who was 17, died after an altercation outside Tesco Express in Wimborne Road, Winton, in the early hours of Saturday, July 16 last year.

An inquest was initially opened into Jack's death in October last year where it was heard that he had suffered brain injuries and cardiac arrest.

The inquest was re-opened yesterday (Friday) by the senior coroner for Dorset Rachael Griffin at Bournemouth Town Hall.

During the pre-inquest review Mrs Griffin said she would be looking into alternative locations for the inquest hearing, which should take place later this year.

She said this was due to "unrest following Jack's death" and would be considering locations where people could give evidence via video link in order to "ensure the safety of all involved".

At the time of Jack's death three men, aged 27, 24, and 23, and a 15-year-old boy, all from Bournemouth, were arrested on suspicion of murder but were later released on police bail pending further enquiries.

However the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that no further action would be taken against any of those arrested.

The inquest was adjourned until Monday, July 17 for another pre-inquest review.
