Fallon: Al-Sweady inquiry 'shameful attempt' to attack British soldiers

Michael Fallon has said that the al-Sweady inquiry has revealed a "shameful attempt" to use the legal system to attack British soldiers.

He said that it showed this was "not another Baha Mousa or an Abu Ghraib, no one died in British custody".

The Defence secretary said the behaviour of the legal team which represented the detainees displayed a "possible breach of professional standards".
