Mundell urges patience in Lockerbie investigation

David Mundell, MP for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, says people need to wait patiently for results from the latest stage of the Lockerbie investigation.

The Scottish Minister was speaking exclusively to ITV Border:

There are no short term answers that are going to emerge that haven't emerged over that period.

I think people have to be patient but I think it is a positive development and we should look at it in that way."

Lockerbie bombing: 'if it was Libya, it was Gaddafi'

Throughout the Lockerbie bombing investigation, questions have been raised about the involvement of Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi, who was convicted of the crime.

Oliver Miles spent a short time as British Ambassador to Libya in 1984, and he isn't certain Libya was involved at all.

But he says if the country was involved, it was certainly organised at the highest level:

Don't forget that Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi, who was convicted of the crime, was convicted of conspiracy. No-one imagines that he acted alone.

There must have been a team, if he was part of it, it was a Libyan team, and if it was a Libyan team, it was Gaddafi."

– Oliver Miles, former British ambassador to Libya
