Inbetweeners firm to make Lockerbie film

[This is the headline over a report in today’s Scottish edition of The Sun.  It reads as follows:]

The producers of hit comedy The Inbetweeners are making a movie on the Lockerbie disaster.

Young Films plan to tell the story of the 1988 PanAm 103 bombing from the view of victims' relatives like Dr Jim Swire.

A movie source said: “They are motivated to make a good film and thoroughly researched this controversial case.”

Campaigner Dr Swire, 76, whose daughter Flora, 23, was one of the 270 victims, believes the Libyan agent Abdelbaset al-Megrahi — now dead — was wrongly convicted of the atrocity.

Dr Swire said: “Any time ordinary members of the public take on the establishment, it makes a good story.” Young Films refused to comment.
