Rammell: 'We did not intervene'

The former foreign office minister Bill Rammell has stressed the government "would not and could not" intervene in the Lockerbie bomber decision, which was a matter for Scottish ministers.

His comments follow a claim from Libyan officials that Gordon Brown did not want Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi to die in prison.
