British MP has evidence of secret Blair/Bush deal

A British MP has said he has a memo showing Tony Blair and George Bush struck a secret deal to invade Iraq.

Elfyn Llwyd told the BBC he had written to the Iraq Inquiry saying he would be prepared to hand the document over.

He said the memo - which is marked "Top Secret and Confidential" - contradicts statements made by Mr Blair.

The former British Prime Minister told the Iraq inquiry there had been no "covert" deal with Mr Bush.
