Mum Of Ipswich Solider Waits For Iraq War Findings

The mother of a sergeant from Ipswich who was killed in the Iraq war has told Heart she's angry it's taken 7 years to publish a report into the conflict.

Elsie Manning's daughter Sharron Elliott was one of four British soldiers who were killed in a boat attack in Southern Iraq in 2006.

She'd only been in Iraq for a week. 

Families of all of the 179 British troops killed were originally told they'd only have to wait 18 months for the Chilcot Report to come out. 

Today it is finally being published. 

The publication of the Chilcot report will be boycotted by some relatives of those who were killed. 

Elsie won't be going to London where the 2 million word report will be unveiled by Sir John Chilcot later.
