Birmingham Coroner Louise Hunt has ruled that the inquests into the deaths of the 21 people who lost their lives in the Birmingham pub bombings will be reopened.

West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said: “I support the coroner’s decision to reopen the inquests.

“I sincerely hope the inquests brings the answers the families of the victims have been seeking.

“The Chief Constable has assured me West Midlands Police will co-operate fully with the inquests and I will hold the Chief Constable to account to deliver on that assurance.

“West Midlands Police had no principled objection to the resumption of the inquests. That was a position I supported.”
