PM: We will never forget those who died in Iraq War

The prime minister has said the lives of those servicemen and women lost in the Iraq War "will never be forgotten".

Speaking after the Chilcot report was delivered, David Cameron said it was a "difficult day for all the families of those who lost loved ones".

He added: "They've waited for this report for too long, and our first thoughts today must be with them.

"In their grief and anger, I hope they can at least draw some solace form the depth and rigour of this report.

"And above all, some comfort from knowing we will never forget the incredible service and sacrifice of their sons, daughters, husbands and wives.

"And we must pledge today to look after them for the rest of their lives."
