Reg Keys: My son died for 'Tony Blair’s grubby war’

Ahead of the publication of the Chilcot report - the long-awaited report into the Iraq War - BBC Radio 5 live has been speaking to the people behind the headlines.

Reg Keys' son, Lance Corporal Thomas Keys, was 20 years old when he was killed in Iraq in 2003, four days before his 21st birthday.

Two years later, Mr Keys stood against Prime Minister Tony Blair in the 2005 General Election as an anti-war independent candidate for Sedgefield.

He said it made the then prime minister "face the world's press and listen to what I'd been longing to say to him about… the gravity of the decision to take Britain to war".
