The 1974 Birmingham pub bombings were an appalling act of murder and I fully appreciate the continuing desire of the families of the victims to obtain justice.

A decision to reinvestigate the 1974 Birmingham pub bombings is one for the West Midlands police. The police have stated on a number of occasions that they would look at any fresh information that came to light.
