THE body of a teenage soldier was found in his barracks six days after he was last seen.
The 19-year-old private reported feeling unwell on November 6 and was told to go to his room before going to the medical center the next day.
But his comrades left and found he had died by the time his body was found on November 12.
Now army chiefs are awaiting the results of a report on the death at the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, south-east London.
Police say his death is unexplained.
A source said: “This is a shocking event. How could it take so long to realize where he was?
“It raises some very serious welfare questions.”
The army declined to comment while a coroner was still investigating.
