An inquest into the death of a Putney man killed in a skydiving accident last year will start today.
Leading wine merchant Patrick Sandeman, 53, reportedly collided with another man during a jump at Sibson Aerodrome, near Peterborough, in September 2012.
The two skydivers came into contact about 50 feet above the ground, according to reports at the time.
Mr Sandeman was a partner with Lea & Sandeman fine wine merchants.
The inquest will take place at the The Huntingdon Registration and Coroner’s Office at Lawrence Court, Princes Street, Huntingdon.
