Pat Finucane's family anger after PM rules out inquiry


The family of murdered solicitor Pat Finucane have cut short a meeting with David Cameron after the prime minister failed to order an inquiry into the killing.

Mr Finucane was shot in 1989 by loyalist paramilitaries at his north Belfast home.

His family have long campaigned for an independent public inquiry.

However at Tuesday's meeting, Mr Cameron proposed a review conducted by a leading QC.

Speaking outside Downing Street, Pat Finucane's widow Geraldine told reporters she felt so angry she could hardly speak.
