The Independent Police Complaints Commission has been given 1,400 names of officers as it investigates South Yorkshire Police's role in the Hillsborough tragedy, MPs were told today.
The inquiry will investigate "potential criminality and police misconduct in respect of police officers, both serving and retired", according to Home Secretary Theresa May.
The South Yorkshire chief constable wrote to me on Friday to say he sent a list of 1,444 names of former and serving officers of South Yorkshire to the IPCC. This is a huge number of names - more than we expected.
