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
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.
