Clare Stevens in the Press

Clare Stevens, Board Director at Hilary Meredith Solicitors, represents thousands of soldiers and their families, including the father of Corporal James Dunsby – one of the three SAS trainees who died from heat exhaustion on an endurance march in the Welsh Brecon Beacons

She said, “The Ministry of Defence repeatedly says it learns the lessons and then another death or injury occurs in circumstances which are almost identical and it becomes clear the lesson has been forgotten, if it was learned properly at all.

“Crown censures are a half-measure. All the evidence suggests there needs to be greater accountability. The best way to achieve that is to remove Crown immunity and let the Ministry of Defence be properly accountable in law. Only then will their minds be properly focused”.
