Calls for public inquiry into police conduct during Battle of Orgreave

Almost thirty years ago, infamous clashes took place between striking miners and police in South Yorkshire. Today, there are new calls for a public inquiry into the actions of police during the so-called Battle of Orgreave.

South Yorkshire Police were mainly responsible for policing the picket - the same force who were recently made to apologise for their handling of the Hillsborough disaster in 1989.

Tonight, our current affairs programme Y Byd ar Bedwar speaks to two ex-miners who were accused of rioting in Orgreave, and investigates claims that senior police officers attempted to trap and frame protestors.

Gwyn Loader reports.

You can watch the programme on S4C tonight at 9.30pm.
