THE Crown Prosecution Service has said today that there is not enough evidence to bring a prosecution over the death of ITN journalist Terry Lloyd.

Head of the counter-terrorism division Sue Hemming said it was not possible to say who fired the fatal shot which killed the reporter in Iraq in March 2003.

An inquest recorded a verdict of unlawful killing in October 2006, and Ms Hemming said forensic evidence indicated Lloyd was injured by shots from Iraqi forces and then by American bullets.

Mr Lloyd worked in Ipswich in the early 1970s as a freelance reporter covering news and sport with Stuart Jarrold who is now a sports reporter on Anglia TV.
