FORMER Police Ombudsman Baroness Nuala O'Loan has spoken about her work as chair of an inquiry into a 1987 axe murder linked to police corruption in England.

The lawyer is heading the inquiry into the murder of private detective Daniel Morgan in a south London car park.

The probe is examining allegations of police involvement in the killing, a subsequent police cover-up, and links between officers and journalists including at the now defunct News of the World.

Mr Morgan's family believe he was about to expose police corruption when he died.

In an interview in today's Irish News Mrs O'Loan said the inquiry is in its final stages.

"We are in the writing-up phase; there's big bundles of documents to revisit, to rethink, as while there have been four investigations into the murder, there's been no answers," she said.
