A jury inquest is to be held into the death of a five-year-old boy who drowned in a swimming pool at a Cornish holiday park.

Robin Van Caliskan had only arrived at the Atlantic Reach site in Newquay, Cornwall, on the day of the incident in July last year.

The youngster had been at the resort with his parents and baby brother.

A pre inquest review held in Truro yesterday (Tuesday) was told that a two-day inquest will be held, with a jury at a date to be fixed.

Robin was described as an "angel boy" in tributes paid after his death.

His parents, Cemal and Ferzane Caliskan, who live in Plymouth, Devon, will give evidence at the inquest.

The Atlantic Reach resort issued a statement after the tragedy last August. It said: "We are absolutely heartbroken that a child sadly passed away here at our resort."

"We do not feel it is appropriate to comment further at this stage, except to say our thoughts are with the family at this time.

"Atlantic Reach is committed to supporting our guests and community, as well as our team that provided immediate assistance. As such we respectfully ask that all those affected are given time and space at this distressing time."

Police said at the time of the incident that officers from Devon and Cornwall Police, along with representatives from Cornwall Council Health and Safety, were carrying out inquiries in relation to the circumstances surrounding the death.
