PSNI detectives investigating the events of Bloody Sunday have announced they are to begin re-interviewing witnesses who gave evidence to the Saville Inquiry.

More than 1,000 witnesses, consisting of local people and former soldiers, are being asked to make statements as part of the criminal investigation.

As part of this investigation, detectives are now seeking to make contact with and re-interview any former soldiers and civilians who gave evidence to the Saville Inquiry or who may have information about the events of January 30, 1972 in which 13 people died and a similar number were injured.

Police say it is necessary to re-interview witnesses because police are precluded from using Saville testimony in a criminal investigation.

Civilians and former solders are asked to contact the investigation team on Tel: 028 9025 9593 or by email to BloodySundayEnquiry@psni.pnn.police.uk
