BREAKING: Ogreave Justice campaign told a decision on a public inquiry will be made by the end of October following a meeting with Home Sec.
The announcement comes after members of the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign met with Home Secretary Amber Rudd.
Campaigners had earlier demonstrated outside parliament alongside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow home secretary Andy Burnham, putting pressure on the Home Office to launch an inquiry into events.
Campaigners who want a public inquiry into the "brutality of policing" at the 1984 Orgreave miners' picket have staged a demonstration in London ahead of a meeting with Home Secretary Amber Rudd.
They were joined by Jeremy Corbyn, shadow home secretary Andy Burnham, and veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner, who said an inquiry would reveal that "what we suspected at the time is true".
A spokesman for the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign (OTJC) said they hope meeting Rudd would "reinforce the case for a public inquiry into the brutality of the policing of pickets".
Margaret Aspinall, whose son died at Hillsborough, said: "If the truth about Orgreave had come out right away I don't believe Hillsborough would have happened."
