Sir John Major criticises Tony Blair over Iraq war

Breaking News

Former Prime Minister Sir John Major has criticised Tony Blair's handling of the Iraq war and his presentation of the case for invasion in March 2003.

Sir John said he had reluctantly backed the war because he believed what Mr Blair had said as prime minister.

But now, he said, big questions had been raised by the evidence given to the Chilcott Inquiry into the war.

Sir John said it now seemed there were doubts before the invasion about whether there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
