Dingo mum Lindy Chamberlain has spoken to a UK broadcaster for the first time since a ruling confirmed a wild dog killed her baby Azaria 32 years ago.

In an interview with Daybreak Lindy speaks about her 32 year ordeal.

She said: "It's been about truth and honesty, more about justice in a lot of ways.

"When you're innocent and know you're innocent you shouldn't have people telling you all the time that you're wrong."

Azaria went missing in 1980 from a campsite near Uhluru, then called Ayers Rock, on August 17 1980.

The coroner's findings end a three-decade fight for justice by Lindy, who was jailed for three years over her daughter's death before she was later cleared.

Lindy added: "The first coroner got it right up until a point where he thought there might have been some human involvement after the fact.

"After he finished, his verdict stood on some of the toes of people who had personal ambition and others who had money behind the scenes.

"This is why the case was reopened and was fought so hard for so long."

Personal ambition and others who had money behind the scenes, was the reason the case was fought so hard for so long.
