AN inquest into the death of a Hatfield scientist who was killed in a top secret military test explosion will finally take place - more than seven years after he died.
Terry Jupp, 46, suffered 60 to 90 per cent burns to his body when a 10kg explosive charge ignited at a Ministry of Defence blast site on August 14, 2002.
He was taken to hospital following the explosion at Newlands Battery in Shoeburyness, Essex, but died of septicaemia six days later.
Dr Peter Dean, the coroner for Southend and South East Essex, said: "The inquest is scheduled to commence at the beginning of October and will be heard with a jury as the cause of Mr Jupp's death arose in connection with his employment."
