Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, welcomed the announcement that the biggest-ever inquiry into police actions in the UK is to be launched in the wake of the damning report of the Hillsborough Independent Panel.
Speaking in Anfield, Liverpool, she said:
Accountability is the most important thing and responsibility, and also to make sure that this never ever happens again. I think that is very important, not just for the families but for the country as a whole because I think the country has been shamed by what has gone on over Hillsborough 23 years ago.
I think it's a shame on the country, a shame on the system and a shame on the governments and I think that has got to be changed and that is a good thing that will come from this.
