Home Secretary Amber Rudd will meet with campaigners from the Orgeave Truth and Justice Campaign (OTJC) after the summer recess, as calls grow for a public inquiry into the incident.

However Ms Rudd said she will not be rushed into a decision but will consider it over the summer.
Earlier, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also called for an inquiry into the Battle of Orgreave in Prime Minister Theresa May's first PMQs.
Thousands of miners and police officers clashed at the Orgreave coking plant near Rotherham in June 1984.
Former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg is returning to front-line politics as Lib Dem spokesman on the EU.
The Sheffield Hallam MP, who used to be an MEP insists that turmoil in the Labour Party means no one is holding the Government to account on Brexit.
Mr Clegg, who quit as Lib Dem leader after the party's near wipe-out in the 2015 general election, expressed alarm at widespread confusion regarding the implications of Brexit.
"With no meaningful opposition from the Labour Party, no exit plan from the Government, Whitehall unprepared for the Brexit negotiations, and above all, Theresa May's refusal to seek a mandate from the people for what is in effect a new government, there is a real risk that she and her Brexit ministers won't be subject to the scrutiny and accountability which voters deserve."

According to the previous Chancellor George Osborne, Treasury figures suggested that if the northern economy grew in line with the rest of the UK over the next 18 years, it would be worth an additional £44bn in real terms.
That is the equivalent of over £1,600 for each person living in the north.
The hope is to redress the North-South economic imbalance, and to attract investment into northern cities and towns.
A major part of the deal involves devolution - elected mayors with extra funding to promote economic investment and to make decisions about services such as planning and transport.
Not everyone thinks that the Northern Powerhouse will, or can, provide tangible benefits for the north.
The Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, the MP for Westmoreland and Lonsdale, recently described the Northern Powerhouse as 'smoke and mirrors'.
"The Northern Powerhouse - giving a boost to the North's economy and giving people more of a say over where they live - is a great idea. To become reality, the Conservatives must match their fancy rhetoric with hard cash.
"The North of England urgently needs investment to support growth and jobs. Rather than continued cuts to local government funding, the government should be investing in transport infrastructure and broadband.
"Unless the government gives proper funding to the Northern Powerhouse, it will remain a grand title with no substance and voters in the North will continue to feel neglected by this Conservative government."
The government has confirmed that Yorkshire MP Andrew Percy is the new Northern Powerhouse Minister.
Mr Percy, the Conservative MP for Brigg and Goole, takes over from Stockton South MP James Wharton.
Mr Wharton has been given a new job as a minister for International Development, as part of Theresa May's ministerial reshuffle.
The Conservative MP Andrew Percy has confirmed to ITV News that he will take over the Northern Powerhouse 'brief', after being appointed the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government.
It comes after the previous Northern Powerhouse Minister, the Stockton South MP James Wharton, was given a new job as a minister for International Development.
Mr Percy, the MP for Brigg and Goole, said he did not know whether he will offically be Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, saying that 'job titles will be sorted out tomorrow'.
A North Yorkshire MP has been given a new ministerial job by the Prime Minister Theresa May.
Robert Goodwill, the Conservative MP for Scarborough and Whitby, was a Transport Minister under David Cameron.
He is now the Minister for Immigration in the Home Office.
