Calls for an inquest into the death of the UK government's chief scientist, Doctor David Kelly, have been rejected by attorney-general Dominic Grieve, who says there is no evidence he was murdered. Dr Kelly's body was found in woods near his home in Oxfordshire in 2003, after he was named as the source of a BBC report casting doubt on the Government's claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. The 2004 Hutton Inquiry found Dr Kelly had committed suicide, and the then-justice secretary ruled the inquiry could take the place of a coronial inquest. But a group of doctors are concerned Lord Hutton spent just half a day of his 24-day inquiry considering the causes of Dr Kelly's death. Mr Grieve has rejected calls for a fresh inquest, saying there is no evidence to support a possible homicide verdict.
