Mother-in-law: Doctor was 'naive not negligent'

The mother-in-law of struck off army doctor Derek Keilloh says he was not part of a cover-up.

Dr Keilloh was the senior medic on duty on the night Iraqi prisoner Baha Mousa died in the custody of soldiers from the Queen's Lancashire Regiment after he suffered 93 separate injuries in 2003.

A medical tribunal said Dr Keilloh was "dishonest" over Mr Mousa's death when he said he saw no injuries on the detainee. Today, he was struck off the medical register.

His mother-in-law Judith Nicholls says he admitted he was naive.
