AN inquest is set to open next week into the death of Felixstowe aid worker Iain Hook - three years after he was shot in an incident in the West Bank town of Jenin.

Dr Peter Dean , Coroner for Greater Suffolk, will conduct the inquest, which starts at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday.

It is expected to last several days and will hear evidence from witnesses - including some of Mr Hook's colleagues - and receive a number of written statements.

Mr Hook, 54, who lived at Felixstowe Ferry, was project manager for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, working at a refugee camp.
