Almost 80 per cent of online Derry Journal readers back the Bloody Sunday families’ call for the British government to pay for a criminal investigation into the deaths of their loved ones.

Earlier this month it was announced that due to cost cutting measures, the investigation into the killings might suffer as a result.

Many of the families said that due to the nature of the incident the British government should pay and allow the investigation to run its course.

Poll result - ‘Should the British government pay for the investigation?’ - Yes (78 per cent) and No (22 per cent).
