A Northern Ireland High Court judge was last night considering whether to give the go-ahead for a legal reopening of investigations into Bloody Sunday.

Papers were lodged in the High Court in Belfast yesterday seeking a judicial review of Lord Widgery's findings into events 25 years ago, when 14 people were shot dead by soldiers during an illegal civil rights march in Londonderry. The papers were passed to the judge who has to grant leave before a hearing can take place.
