Husband not satisfied with report

A MAN who lost his wife and two of his children in the 2011 floods has said he is dissatisfied with the coroner's findings.

Danny McGuire, who lost his wife Llync-Chainn, son Garry and daughter Jocelyn at Grantham, said he wanted people to be held accountable.

Mr McGuire said he believed the coroner had times wrong and the fire service, which he believed was withholding information, had escaped "scot free".

He said there should be a new judicial inquiry to help him and other families get closure.

"I want a new inquiry, that's the main thing, but for me and the other families, closure," he said.

However, Colleen Engel found the process "helpful" in the grieving process for her brother, Ipswich man Robert Bromage, who died when his car was swept off a roadway at Karrabin.

She said her family had built close relationships with the people involved in the inquiry, which she believed had been thorough.

"We don't really know the (whole) story and we never will about our brother," she said.

"I think it does bring a certain amount of closure."

A spokeswoman for the Attorney-General said a full coronial inquest had been held and "the Newman Government has no plans to hold another judicial inquiry".
