Sir Norman Bettison, the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire has told ITV News "there's nothing I'm ashamed of."
In an exclusive interview, the officer the families believe should resign for his role in the Hillsborough cover up, told ITV News:
I asked Sir Norman Bettison if while at South Yorkshire Police he was part of a 'black operations unit' to smear the fans. "No not at all", he said.
Sir Norman denied that in his statement yesterday he had blamed the fans again for making the police's job harder.
As for the calls for him to resign he said that wasn't news, that the families had said the same fourteen years ago when he became Chief Constable of Merseyside Police.
This was a senior policeman who is adamant he has done nothing wrong, nothing to be ashamed of, that the report does not in any way suggest he did otherwise.
But the Hillsborough families don't agree.
