The Foreign Office confirmed the final five bodies being returned today are Lisa Burbidge, Stuart Cullen, Christopher Dyer, Goole man Bruce Wilkinson and Hull woman Claire Windass.

They will arrive on an RAF C-17 aircraft at RAF Brize Norton at about 3pm

Some 30 British people were among the 38 killed by gunman Seifeddine Rezgui on the beach at Sousse.

Yesterday the Queen and the Prime Minister joined millions of people across the country in a minute’s silence in a solemn tribute to those killed.

An RAF plane carrying the bodies of the final five murdered Britons is expected to arrive at Brize Norton in Oxfordshire this afternoon.

Their coffins will be loaded onto hearses and travel in convoy to West London Coroner’s Court in Fulham, west London, where inquests into their deaths will be held.

Chinyere Inyama, senior coroner for West London, yesterday opened inquests into eight of the Britons killed in the tragedy.

The court heard evidence about the deadly wounds inflicted on the tourists as they holidayed at the resort.

And further inquests into those killed will be opened over the weekend.
