Six people including two former senior police officers have been charged with criminal offences relating to the deaths of 96 people at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough football ground. Commenting on the news, Shadow Home Secretary Sir Ed Davey said:
“Justice for the victims of the Hillsborough has been a slow and torturous process that has stained the reputation of our police. The cover up and lies have caused untold anguish for the families and it is right that those responsible will be forced to face justice.
“I only hope that the establishment have learnt the lessons of Hillsborough and that establishing the truth and getting justice for the families of those who died in the Grenfell disaster does not take as long.”Leave a comment
