More Bloody Sunday relatives to see report

More relatives are to see the report before its publication

Two relatives of each victim of Bloody Sunday will now be allowed to see the Saville Report before it is published, the House of Commons Speaker has said.

Originally only one member of each family was to be given access to the report prior to publication, but they said this was not sufficient.

The report is currently being checked by government lawyers for material which could pose a security threat.

A publication date has not yet been given.

However, Secretary of State Shaun Woodward has warned a general election could delay the report.

Thirteen people died after paratroopers opened fire during a civil rights march in Londonderry in January 1972. Another died later of his injuries.
