Bettison 'should be stripped of his knighthood'

Trevor Hicks from Keighley lost two daughters at the Hillsborough tragedy. He's given his reaction of Sir Norman Bettison's retirement, calling for him to lose his knighthood.

We are glad he's realised his position is untenable. However I'm determined that he doesn't escape his just deserts. I'll make sure he's stripped of his knighthood and his fellowship of Liverpool University. He should leave with nothing, like he did the families.

– Trevor Hicks, father of two victims
