Saville defends Bloody Sunday inquiry

The Chairman of the Inquiry into the Bloody Sunday shootings in Northern Ireland has defended the £195m cost of producing his report.

It took 12 years and most expensive inquiry in British legal history, but Lord Saville said it would have been a "disaster" if not done thoroughly.

In a BBC interview he said his report seemed "to have achieved a lessening of tensions and possibly a degree of moving on".

Mark Simpson reports.
