Megrahi family 'want justice for Lockerbie victims'

ITN Scotland correspondent Debi Edward is at the press conference announcing an appeal against the conviction of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi for the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.

Mr Megrahi's family say they are seeking justice for the victims of the atrocity, as well as for Mr Megrahi himself.

Lawyers are trying to relaunch an appeal that Mr Megrahi had prepared prior to his release from jail in 2009 on compassionate grounds.
