The request from the Attorney General to quash the original inquest verdicts follows the publication of a damning independent report in September which concluded that 41 of the 96 people who died would have had the 'potential to survive' if they had received medical treatment more quickly. Attorney General Dominic Grieve called for fresh inquests to be held. AFP PHOTO / CARL COURT (Photo credit should read CARL COURT/AFP/Getty Images)
