An inquest has started into the death of Leeds anti-violence campaigner Pat Regan who was found dead at her home in 2008.

Her grandson, 21-year-old Rakeim Regan, who had severe paranoid schizophrenia, admitted killing her.

He was ordered to be detained indefinitely at a secure mental hospital after pleadeding guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

Mrs Regan was an active member of Mothers Against Guns and took part in national campaigns with the group and was invited to Downing Street for a summit with the Prime Minister.

She became involved with the campaign after her son Danny was murdered in St Helens in December 2002.
