Second inquiry into mineshaft death


The first minister has ordered a further inquiry into how the failed rescue of Alison Hume was handled by Strathclyde Fire and Rescue.

The inquiry will be carried out by the chief inspector of fire services.

Alison Hume died after falling down a disused mineshaft in July 2008.

Alex Salmond has said the service should not "second guess" the findings of a Fatal Accident Inquiry which heavily criticised the actions of senior officers.
