Bettison report due

The police watchdog is to publish its report over claims of misconduct by a senior police officer following the Hillsborough disaster.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has been investigating allegations that Sir Norman Bettison supplied misleading information.

Sir Norman, who has always denied any wrongdoing, was with South Yorkshire Police at the time of the disaster in which 96 fans died.

A spectator at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, Sir Norman was involved in the police investigation into what happened at the ground.

He resigned from West Yorkshire Police in October amid controversy over his handling of the aftermath of the tragedy, saying the scrutiny was too much of a distraction for the force.

Sir Norman was referred to the IPCC last year following allegations he "concocted a false story of what happened".
