More than 100 police officers and staff have still failed to give witness accounts to the IPCC as part of their investigation into the Hillsborough disaster.
64 are from South Yorkshire Police and 68 are from West Midlands Police. Some were unable to provide an account for reasons such as poor health; others have not responded to contact from the IPCC. There were also a number of individuals who couldn’t be traced.
Despite this, the IPCC say they remain on course to deliver a full file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service at the end of the year.
The IPCC also say they've recorded more than 4,000 witness accounts during the course of the investigation and around 1,200 of those are from police officers/staff.

Despite a Commons defeat the Leigh MP and Shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham has pledged to continue the fight for a 'Hillsborough Law'. If passed it would give parity of funding to bereaved families at inquests where police are involved.

He hopes the House of Lords will now back amendments to the Policing and Crime Bill before it becomes law.
