Miliband: Cameron is right to reject calls for Lockerbie inquiry

Labour leader Ed Miliband said he believed the Prime Minister's response to calls for a fresh inquiry into the conviction of al-Megrahi was correct. He told ITV Daybreak:

I am obviously very sympathetic to the families who have gone through this terrible grief and who don't feel that they have got proper answers.

I think the Prime Minister is right though, that unless there is new evidence that comes forward - we had a whole trial, it was a long and painstaking trial which took place, it was done in a proper court of law
