Freeing the Lockerbie bomber 'is an insult to Yvonne Fletcher'

Breaking News

The mother of the policewoman murdered by a Libyan gunman in London 25 years ago has condemned as 'sickening' the reported deal to send the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing back to Tripoli.

Queenie Fletcher branded the plan to let Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi leave a Scottish prison an 'insult' to the memory of her daughter Yvonne.

'What is going on is absolutely sickening,' the 76-year- old said from her home in Semley, Dorset.

She accused politicians of letting Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi gain the 'upper hand' in any discussions over handing over WPC Fletcher's killers.

The 25-year- old officer was on duty during a protest outside the Libyan Embassy in April 1984 when she was hit by a bullet fired from inside.
