A fresh date has been set for the inquest into the death of a zookeeper who was mauled by a tiger as she worked.

Sarah McClay, 24, was killed by a Sumatran tiger at the South Lakes Wild Animal Park in Dalton on May 24, 2013.

Miss McClay, of Dowie Close, Barrow, was dragged 100 yards into the enclosure by the rare animal and died of her injuries in hospital.

The inquest into her death had been scheduled to commence on Monday, July 14, but has been rearranged.

The jury inquest will now begin on September 15 in the County Offices, Kendal, and culminate on September 22.
