THE inquest of a Doncaster solicitor who was gunned down by mass killer Derrick Bird in Cumbria last year was among those due to open today.

Bird, 52, went on a shooting rampage killing 12 people as he drove around West Cumbria on June 2 before turning the gun on himself.

Bird’s first victim was his solicitor Kevin Commons, 60, who was born and brought up in Doncaster.

He grew up in Cantley but lived in Frizington.
