Representatives of the Hillsborough victims' families will meet with the Home Affairs Committee to discuss what action needs to be taken concerning the police following the publication of the Hillsborough documents.

The Home Affairs Committee has called the Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police, David Crompton, to update the Committee on his actions following the publication of the Hillsborough Independent Panel Report, in particular regarding the referrals of serving and former officers to the IPCC.

The Committee has also invited advisor to the victims' families, Lord Falconer, to give evidence to the Committee on what steps should be taken regarding issues concerning the police following the Hillsborough Independent Panel Report.

"It is imperative that justice is done for the victims and their families.

"The Committee will be seeking assurances that South Yorkshire police are taking action to ensure officers who have committed alleged wrong-doing are investigated.

"We also want to ensure the views of the victims' families on the matter are acted upon."

– Committee Chair Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP
