Dumfries and Galloway police say their Lockerbie investigation will continue in order to bring justice to the others involved. I think it's fair to say people in Lockerbie are not spending much time reflecting on the death of al-Megrahi, most just want to move on.
The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commision (SCCRC) confirmed that al-Megrahi's family or 'an interested party' can apply to have his conviction reviewed again. However SCCRC will not accept a case where the only issues raised are the same as matters it rejected in the previous review.
If a new application for a review is made SCCRC would consider reasons for the abandonment of al-Megrahi's 2nd appeal before it would accept the case.
Gaddafi is dead, his regime swept away and his man, Megrahi will be buried unheralded.
David Cameron said the Lockerbie bomber "should never have been released from prison" after his family said he had died in Tripoli.
