Secret files on the death of Dr David Kelly will be handed over to medical experts to see if the suicide verdict can be challenged.
Ministers want independent advice on whether there are any discrepancies or unanswered questions in the post mortem examination report.
Home Office pathologist Nicholas Hunt concluded the weapons inspector died after cutting a small artery in his wrist. But a group of doctors campaigning for an inquest into Dr Kelly’s death claim he would not have lost enough blood to end his life.
Attorney General Dominic Grieve wants to establish whether they have a solid case.
The Mail can reveal the doctors have now begun legal action, calling on Mr Grieve to petition the High Court for an inquest.
Through their lawyers, Leigh Day & Co, the doctors have listed their reasons in a petition document known as a ‘memorial’.
