Thirty-seven years after police officer Yvonne Fletcher was shot dead outside the Libyan Embassy in London, one of her fellow officers has brought a civil case to the High Court in a bid to have someone held to account for the incident.

John Murray, who is now retired, is seeking symbolic damages against Saleh Ibrahim Mabrouk, a former aide to the late Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi.
