West Yorkshire Police has voluntarily referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), in relation to matters raised in recent correspondence, surrounding police action at the Bradford City fire disaster of 1985.
In a statement the force said that serious issues had been raised, both in a book by Mr Martin Fletcher, who lost relatives in the fire, and subsequently by Mr Fletcher’s legal representatives.
A senior officer met with them both this week, to discuss those matters in detail.
They say the issues relate not just to West Yorkshire Police, but to a number of other agencies and organisations.
Since publication of Mr Fletcher’s book, West Yorkshire Police has been working to identify what material was still available from the original enquiry and has found that, despite the passage of time, a lot of material had been retained.
West Yorkshire Police fully understands that this will bring back painful memories for people who were there or who lost loved ones 30 years ago, but it is important that the concerns raised by Mr Fletcher are addressed. We are awaiting a decision from the IPCC on the referral.
