A pro-life campaigner says he will bring a private prosecution against the doctors and parents of Tony Bland, the Hillsborough disaster victim who is to be allowed to die after a House of Lords ruling, if he is killed by 'deliberate starvation' at Airedale General Hospital, West Yorkshire.

Father James Morrow, 58, of Braemar, Aberdeenshire, described the House of Lords ruling on Thursday allowing doctors to stop feeding Mr Bland, 21, who has been in a persistent vegetative state since he was crushed at the disaster in April 1989, as 'lamentable and unsound'. He has taken legal advice and been told that a private prosecution is feasible.
