Lawyers for the 57-year-old, who is dying of prostate cancer, said he had taken the unexpected decision after his condition took a "significant turn for the worse".

They reacted to the latest news with dismay and immediately renewed their calls for a full public inquiry into the atrocity in which 270 people died.
