Why so long?

Just read the headline to this article in the Mail.

David Kelly post mortem to be kept secret for 70 years as doctors accuse Lord Hutton of concealing vital information

Seventy years (70 years) for a 'suicide'.

What on earth could be in that post mortem report that in needs to be kept secret for 70 years?

It was a sweeping instruction which included the Kelly post mortem information among all other medical records and the Chief Coroner for Oxfordshire considers Lord Hutton had embargoed the records to protect Dr Kelly’s children. Therefore, the instruction can be reversed, assuming the children are in agreement.

It does seem fishy, however, given that Hutton was never going to be as impartial as was needed.
