A British paratrooper commended for bravery in Iraq helped trigger the brutal attack in which six Red Caps died, a BBC documentary has claimed.
The programme, Sweeney Investigates, said Cpl John Dolman fired shots which exacerbated the riot in which the six men died in southern Iraq in 2003.

Cpl Dolman, who left the Army last year to work for a security firm, was killed in a Baghdad suicide bomb in January.

An MoD inquiry into the deaths found they could not have been prevented.

Some of the men's families accused the MoD of a cover-up and called for an independent inquiry.

The programme said Cpl Dolman had been previously investigated for the killing of two civilians in Kosovo.
