The BBC:

The public inquiry into the Shirley McKie fingerprint scandal has opened in Glasgow.

Ms McKie was cleared of perjury after being accused of leaving a fingerprint at an Ayrshire murder scene in 1997 and received £750,000 in compensation.

Former Northern Ireland Judge Sir Anthony Campbell is leading the inquiry, announced by the Scottish Government earlier this year.

In his opening statement he said he wanted a “full and fair” hearing.
