The last five bodies of British victims killed in the Tunisia beach attack will be flown back to the UK on Saturday (4 July) afternoon.

An RAF plane carrying the bodies will arrive at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire from where they will be loaded onto hearses and travel in a convoy to the West London Coroner's Court in Fulham.

Post-mortem examinations will be carried out before the bodies are released to their families.

Inquests by the coroner will continue into the deaths of the 30 Britons killed in the assault.

On Friday, a minute's silence was held across the UK in memory of the victims with the Queen and Prime Minister David Cameron joining in.

Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid also took part in commemorations in his country.

The assault by a 28-year old Tunisian student identified as Seifeddine Rezgui lasted almost 35 minutes. Rezgui was killed later by security forces.

Eight other suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack, which was claimed by Islamic State militants.

Based on accounts of more than a 1000 witnesses who have since returned to the UK, detective sergeant David Batt of the Counter Terrorism Command told the Fulham hearing that the tourists were "indiscriminately targeted by the gunman" in the attack.

The youngest victim of the attack, Joel Richards, 19, died of gunshot wounds to the head.

Three Irish citizens, two Germans, one Belgian, one Portuguese and one Russian national were among the others killed in the bloodbath at the beach resort Sousse.

The attack came after the IS warned that "Ramadan will have a lot of surprises" and claimed the highest number of Britons killed in a militant incident since the 2005 suicide bomb attacks in London which ended in the death of 52 people.
