Father of Yorkshire Solider Awaits Chilcot Report Findings

The long-awaited Chilcot inquiry report is due out today.

The two million-word report, six years in the making, will be unveiled by Sir John Chilcot.

Tony Blair, prime minister when Britain went to war, has said he will not make any comment until the report is made public.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has indicated the former Labour leader will not be liable for prosecution, reiterating its conclusion 10 years ago that the decision to go to war is not within its jurisdiction.

The court said it will look at the report's findings before deciding whether there is a "reasonable basis'' to begin an investigation.

It's understood some of the relatives of the 79 Britons killed in the conflict will be boycotting it, amid fears of a 'whitewash'.

One man who will be there is Peter Brierley from Batley. His son Lance Corporal Shaun Brierley was killed in Iraq in 2003.

He's spoke to STATION ahead of the report's release
