Below right is the article proper and below left is the News of the World editorial the same day: the ninth anniversary of the massacre.
On orders from the Scottish Executive, around half of the files on Cullen's illegal embargo were finally released on 3 October 2005, but in a much redacted, largely illegible form.

A GRIEVING dad who's only daughter was killed in the Dunblane massacre is fighting to gain access to official documents which have been quietly locked away until 2096. LINK

Dr Mick North, who lost five-year-old Sophie when gun fiend Thomas Hamilton ran amok nine years ago today, has filed a Freedom of Information Act request demanding access to them.

The Crown Office has failed to make available ANY of the 106 documents studied by Lord Cullen during his 26-day inquiry into the atrocity. LINK

Crown officials had promised to release some of the reports two years ago after an outcry over the secrecy.

Campaigners claim the inquiry did not answer vital questions.

Mick, 56, said: "It overlooked some of the worst failings of a system that allowed Hamilton to keep guns despite serious concerns about his conduct." LINK

We know who killed the above victims, but, although we may not care, we do not know for sure who killed Thomas Hamilton, and why that person was carrying a revolver at the time!
