Iraq inquiry to question Lord Goldsmith


The government's chief legal advisor at the time of the Iraq invasion is to appear before the Chilcot inquiry today. Lord Goldsmith will set out his decision for advising that the invasion would be legal, a day after two former Foreign Office lawyers told the inquiry the war breached international law.

Correspondent Peter Hunt previews Lord Goldsmith's appearance.
