The family of a teacher murdered by one of her pupils has begun a High Court challenge against a decision not to call students as witnesses at an inquest.

Ann Maguire, who was 61 years old, was stabbed to death by a 15 year old boy at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds in April 2014.

At an earlier hearing, her relatives were given permission to challenge the coroner's decision not to hear evidence from other pupils at the school.

Will Cornick has admitted murdering Ann Maguire


According to the BBC, the Will Cornick was sentenced to life in prison after admitting the crime.

Maguire was a dedicated and committed Catholic who, as well as teaching Spanish, also took religious education classes. The pope led the tributes at the time of her death.

A full inquest is scheduled to begin at Wakefield Coroners' Court in November
