Chilcot report to criticise Blair

Tony Blair is expected to be warned within days that he faces criticism by the inquiry into the Iraq war.

The former foreign secretary Jack Straw and Alastair Campbell, Mr Blair's ex-communications director, are also to receive letters from the Chilcot inquiry telling them they may be criticised when the report is published later this year. The report is expected to criticise Mr Blair over his Government's reliance on sketchy intelligence to make the case for war.

Documents released by the inquiry showed how MI6 believed Mr Campbell was an "unguided missile" by leaking information to journalists.
