Ballymurphy relative - coroner 'made a bad decision'

Up to 21 inquests into controversial killings in Northern Ireland are to proceed after a suspension was lifted.

The tribunals, ordered by Attorney General John Larkin, were halted when senior coroner John Leckey questioned whether he had exceeded his powers.

But a legal challenge to that move by some relatives formally ended at the High Court in Belfast on Monday.

After the ruling, some of the families said they no longer had any faith in Mr Leckey.

John Teggart whose father was killed in the 70s in Ballymurphy said questions need answered.
