A CRITICAL report into the way the Historical Enquires Team investigated Army killings during the Troubles is to be discussed by the Policing Board.

Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) on Wednesday ddescribed the HET’s approach as “illegal and untenable”.

NI Chief Constable Matt Baggott ordered the review following criticism of the HET in a University of Ulster report.

The HMIC said the HET investigated some cases with “less vigour than others”.
