Chilcot report: Father of killed soldier dismisses Blair

Peter Brierley, whose son Lance Corporal Shaun Brierley was killed at the start of the Iraq War in 2003, has dismissed Tony Blair as "delusional".

He told the Victoria Derbyshire programme he believed the former prime minister "should answer for what he did" in taking the UK to war.

Mr Brierley was joined by Debi Allbutt, whose husband was killed in Iraq.

She said Mr Blair "should accept that he was wrong... Iraq and the world is not a better place."
