Marina Litvinenko on the fight for truth

Marina Litvinenko, the widow of ex-KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko who was poisoned in 2006, says she and the coroner examining his case are disappointed that the British government has blocked a public inquiry into his death.

The coroner had argued that an inquiry was necessary because vital evidence couldn't be considered by a normal inquest.

Speaking to Jeremy Vine on The Andrew Marr Show, Mrs Litvinenko said she's worried that it will not be possible to achieve justice until an inquest is completed and only then will she be able to move on.
