Hillsborough campaigner and Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotheram added:
This is another huge milestone on the road to justice for the 96.
The Attorney General made clear earlier this year that the evidence from the Hillsborough Independent Panel Report was overwhelming and as a consequence he would be filing an application to the High Court to overturn the original 'accidental death' inquest verdicts from 1989. Today, he delivered on that promise.
In terms of what happens now, there will be a 14-day consultation period in which time any individual or organisation involved in the original 1989 inquest may make representations to the court. It is important that due process is done.
