Hillsborough families 'very happy' Bettison will face scrutiny

Margaret Aspinall's 18-year-old son James was among the 96 who died at the FA Cup semi-final, said that she is "very happy" to learn that Sir Norman Bettison, the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police, will be among police officers to face scrutiny by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

He will be included and he is not going to be the only one.

Obviously they are going to look back at all the serving policemen on that day and I think that is a great thing to do because they were so many involved as part of that cover-up.

Also what we must not forget is West Midlands Police, and that they are going to be investigated as well. What did they know about the cover-up?

So I think it is very important to get this all out in the open.
