She applauded Attorney General Dominic Grieve as "a man of his word" and said "he did what he promised".

She added: "I am glad we never gave up. It has been hard, but we wouldn't have been here today. I'd like a corporate manslaughter verdict in the inquest, it's the least for what they have done. It's a long process.
