'Battle of Orgreave': Police 'had been relishing' clashes
 

A former police officer who was at the 1984 "Battle of Orgreave" says police had been told to use "as much force as possible" against striking miners.
Police clashed with miners at the Orgreave coke plant in South Yorkshire, on 18 June - and campaigners want a new inquiry into policing on the day.
The ex-Merseyside constable told the BBC senior officers "were anticipating trouble and in some ways relishing it".
South Yorkshire Police said it would "fully participate" in any inquiry.
