According to the Liverpool Echo, the Home Secretary has released the following statement on the new Hillsborough police investigation:
I am giving the IPCC new powers to investigate police misconduct, but this investigation will ensure no body with responsibility for fan safety at Hillsborough will escape scrutiny.
The Hillsborough inquest verdicts of accidental death have been quashed by the High Court and a new police investigation has been announced.
Families of the Hillsborough victims are on their way to London for a historic hearing. They hope to hear the inquest verdicts overturned.
