Sarah McClay died aged 24 after being mauled by Padang, a Sumatran tiger, as she worked at South Lakes Wild Animal Park on May 24 last year.

Her inquest is set to take place before a jury in Barrow Town Hall on July 14 and is expected to last three days.

She was grabbed by the tiger which dragged here around 100 yards into its enclosure inflicting spinal and head injuries.

She was airlifted to the Royal Preston Hospital by the North West Air Ambulance where she later died.

Barrow Borough Council, the zoo's licensing authority, has said its own investigations into the incident are ongoing.
