The inquiry in Edinburgh is scheduled to last for eight weeks
A fatal accident inquiry has opened into the death of a young man in a residential hospital in the Borders.
Kieran Nichol, 20, of Hawick, died in the Castle Craig Clinic at Blyth Bridge in December 2005. The cause of death was given as acute drug poisoning.
At the hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, representatives of the Crown, the clinic and medical staff expressed their sorrow to Mr Nichol's family.
The inquiry was then adjourned to allow for a site visit to the clinic.
The hearing is due to resume on Wednesday and is scheduled to last for eight weeks.
