Margaret Thatcher's miner strike ‘war’ files exposed

The papers, from the 1984 files of Mrs Thatcher, the Cabinet Office and Home Office, are set to be placed in the National Archives before Christmas.Investigations by the Daily Star Sunday suggest intimidation, fabrication of evidence and even surveillance were used.

Campaigners calling for a public inquiry into the strike said “everything” must be revealed.

As we have previously told, evidence suggests there was a plot to “fit-up” miners during one of the major flashpoints.
The “Battle of Orgreave” in South Yorkshire in June 1984 saw miners and police officers injured in what campaigners believe was a pre-planned operation to “teach the miners a lesson”.
