The Independent Police Complaints Commission will investigate the role of the West Midlands Police in the Hillsborough disaster, and their role in a possible cover-up.
The investigation will affect a large number of former and serving officers and will look specifically at the following critical issues:
- The amendments to statements – who ordered it, who knew about it, who was involved in the process and was pressure put on individual officers?
- The allegations that misleading information was passed to the media, and MPs, Parliament and Inquiries to deflect blame from police
- The role of West Midlands Police and those who led that investigation into the disaster
