Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams said Sir Norman Bettison had no choice but to retire after the findings of the recent report.
Ms Williams, whose 15-year-old son Kevin died on the Leppings Lane terrace, said:
I think the whole lot of them who have been involved for these 23 years should all go for the hurt that they have caused us for 23 years.
I don't think he would have retired if it wasn't for the Hillsborough report.
The families of Hillsborough victims welcomed the retirement Sir Norman Bettison, who criticised Liverpool fans in the wake of the disaster.
Steve Kelly believed his brother Michael died shortly after the crush at Hillsborough began. Now documents suggest that was not the case.
The police chief that the Hillsborough victims' families believe smeared their loved ones has exclusively told ITV News he is 'not ashamed.'
