John Stollery's family say they hope the inquest will raise awareness of what happened, and has outcomes which will help "lessons being learnt".

Stratford MP in favour of President Trump visit

The Iraqi born Stratford Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi says he is in favour of President Trump being given a state visit to Britain.

It comes despite the controversy over the President's travel ban on seven nations which the MP feared would mean that having been born in Baghdad he could not travel to see his two sons who are studying in the US.
