The public may be excluded from part of a pre-inquest hearing into the death of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.
A coroner was today considering an application from the government to keep some information secret at the forthcoming inquest.
Mr Litvinenko died at a London hospital in November 2006, three weeks after drinking tea which had been poisoned with the radioactive isotope polonium-210.
