Public Inquiry considered for Birmingham pub bombings

Fresh inquests last year ruled the victims were unlawfully killed, but did not establish who was responsible.
A flawed investigation by West Midlands Police led to the wrongful convictions of the Birmingham Six – one of the worst miscarriages of justice in British legal history. The six men - Hugh Callaghan, Patrick Joseph Hill, Gerard Hunter, Richard McIlkenny, William Power and John Walker were each sentenced to life imprisonment in 1975 following their false convictions.
Patrick (Paddy) Hill went on to help establish MOJO (Miscarriage of Justice Organisation) Scotland which is a charity to support innocent people leaving prison.
West Midlands Police said there continued to be an active criminal investigation into the case.
