Medical records which could shed light on the death of government scientist David Kelly are to be kept secret for 70 years, it emerged yesterday.

In an unprecedented move, Lord Hutton, the man who chaired the inquiry into the mysterious death, ordered that vital evidence including Dr Kelly's post mortem will be kept under wraps until the 2070s.

The revelation, which sparked further claims of a cover-up, comes just days before Tony Blair is due to give evidence to the Chilcott inquiry into the Iraq War.

Dr Kelly's body was found in July 2003 in woods near his Oxfordshire home, only days after it emerged he was the source of a BBC story which claimed evidence against Iraq had been 'sexed up' to justify invasion.
