UK 'has nothing to hide' on torture


A cross party committee of MPs and peers says there needs to be an independent inquiry to find out whether the UK is involved in torturing terrorist suspects after it was unable to establish whether British officers were involved in mistreatment of suspects.

Andrew Dismore MP, chairman of the Joint Human Rights Committee which wrote the report, and Foreign Office minister Ivan Lewis, discuss whether the head of MI5 should testify to refute claims of torture.
