Picture shows: Marina Litvinenko smiling outside the High Court in London today after winning the judgement.<br />
<br />
The widow of murdered former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko has won a High Court victory raising her hopes of obtaining a public inquiry into her husband's death.<br />
Marina Litvinenko challenged the UK Government's decision to await the outcome of a normal inquest before deciding whether there should be an inquiry with powers to probe more deeply into the killing.<br />
<br />
Now three High Court judges have decided that Home Secretary Theresa May must reconsider the decision in the light of their ruling.<br />
