The father of a Lockerbie victim has called for an immediate inquiry into an aircraft circuit board fragment which links the 1988 disaster to Malta.

Jim Swire wrote to Scotland’s Lord Advocate after it emerged last week that the three experts most involved in defining the significance of the discrepancy over the metal were never approached by the Crown Office of the police.

The circuit board fragment was the crucial link at the trial and suggested that the bomb departed from Malta.
