Former Conservative leader Michael Howard has thrown his weight behind demands for a full inquest into the death of the government weapons expert Dr David Kelly.

His call came after a group of prominent experts described the official explanation for the scientist's death seven years ago as “extremely unlikely”.

Lord Howard — now a Tory peer — said their intervention confirmed his belief.

“This has been on my mind for quite a while and recent events have crystallised my view,” he said.
