Decision on fresh pub bombings inquest adjourned

The Chief constable of West Midlands police has been ordered to produce information, in response to a claim that the force may have been tipped off in advance of the Birmingham pub bombings, by an IRA mole.

A coroner made the order after hearing legal submissions about whether there was enough evidence to reopen inquests into the 21 people who died.

Chris Halpin reports.
