South Yorkshire Police have responded to former Sun editor Kelvin McKenzie's demand that they apologise to him. In a magazine article he claims that he was vilified over the paper's coverage of the disaster whilst, he says, the force got off 'scot free'.
South Yorkshire Police awaits Mr MacKenzie's letter with interest. It is well known that many media outlets ran similar stories at the time based on the same sources but chose to treat them differently. Mr MacKenzie was responsible for the particular headline he chose to run with.
