New Hillsborough inquests ordered

Published Add your comment

The High Court has quashed the original accidental death inquest verdicts returned after 96 Liverpool football fans died in the crush at Hillsborough 23 years ago.

The Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge and two other judges in London ordered fresh inquests following an application by the Attorney General Dominic Grieve.

Lord Judge said there were "good grounds" for the application made by Grieve and described what happened in 1989 as "catastrophic".
