Exclusive: Nick Clegg calls for inquiry into the Battle of Orgreave


"NIck CLEGG backs calls for a public inquiry into Battle of Orgreave during the 1980s miners’ strike.

The former Deputy Prime Minister has said the time is right to investigate the 1984 violent clash between police and miners in South Yorkshire that led to the arrests of 93 pickets.

Backing calls from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign he said: “With each passing day there are more questions to be asked. The more people are peeling back the events and the personalities involved, the more I think we will have to revisit the events surrounding Orgreave."
