David Kelly: No need for inquest says attorney general

The attorney general has said he will not order an inquest into the death of government scientist Dr David Kelly.

Dr Kelly, who found himself at the centre of a row between the BBC and the former Labour government over Iraq intelligence, was found dead in 2003.

The original inquest was suspended when the Hutton inquiry investigated his death - it ruled he committed suicide.

A group of doctors say that finding was "clearly unsafe" and have said they may seek a judicial review into the issue.
