Blair arrives for Iraq grilling


Former prime minister Tony Blair is to appear before the Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq war for a second time

Tony Blair has arrived at the Chilcot Inquiry to face fresh questions about his decision to take Britain to war with Iraq.

The former prime minister is to make his second appearance before the inquiry to explain gaps in his earlier evidence and apparent discrepancies between his account and official documents and other witnesses’ testimony.

The number of protesters outside the QEII Conference Centre in central London, where the inquiry is being held, was not as high as the last time he attended the hearing.

He is expected to be grilled about what promises he made to former US president George Bush and his attitude to the advice about the legality of the war he received from former attorney general Lord Goldsmith.
