An inquest is due to open into the death of a British woman killed in a terrorist attack in Tunisia.

Mother-of-two Sally Adey of Caynstall, near Shifnal, Shropshire, died in an attack on the National Bardo Museum in Tunis on March 18.

The 57-year-old solicitor was on an excursion with her husband Robert, aged 52 – who was unharmed during the attack.

The couple were on a holiday cruise aboard the MSC Splendida, which docked at the port in Tunis on the day of the assault.

More than 20 were killed in the attack including 17 cruise ship tourists, with Mrs Adey among them.

Two gunmen who carried out the atrocity were subsequently killed in a firefight with security forces.

The Islamic State group based in Iraq and Syria later claimed responsibility for the attack.

On Sunday, the Tunisian government said another leading suspect implicated in the terror assault had been killed near the Algerian border.

Mrs Adey’s inquest is due to open at The Shirehall in Shrewsbury later.
