David Cameron: Lockerbie bomber Megrahi release wrong

Prime Minister David Cameron has criticised the Labour government for "doing all it could" to facilitate Libya in its appeal to release Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi.

Sir Gus O'Donnell, the country's most senior civil servant, said there was an "underlying desire" to see Megrahi released before he died.

But his report concluded that it was made clear to Libya that the final decision was up to Scottish ministers.
