The Scouts' boss has said he wants to be able to look the parents of a killed boy in the eyes and ensure them the tragedy will not be repeated. Ben Leonard, 16, from Stockport in Greater Manchester fell from cliffs in Llandudno, Conwy, in August 2018. Matt Hyde, chief executive of The Scout Association, has told the inquest into his death that lessons will be learned. The organisation has already told the Manchester inquest that it accepts responsibility for the boy's death.
