Families who lost loved ones in the Hillsborough Disaster are calling for Theresa May to send a team to conduct a 'rigorous' examination of South Yorkshire Police.
We are appalled to see the shambles in South Yorkshire Police following the Hillsborough Inquest verdict. SYP leadership have showed a lamentable refusal to face up the fact that their organization needs to take along hard look at their values and ethics.
We believe the rank and file officers in the force are being let down by their leaders. Sadly the only solution would appear to be the application of remedial measures and we have today asked Theresa May to commence the procedure to enable this.
The Home Secretary needs to send a team in to look at the force root and branch, to speak to the rank and file and see what they think is wrong in the force and what needs to be done. We believe there needs to be a rigorous and continuing examination of the ethical behavior of the force at every level.
The Force’s motto is ‘Justice with Courage’ – sadly they have shown neither.’

The coroner of the Hillsborough inquests will begin summing up today.
Lord Justice Goldring will summarsie the case to the jury after 260 days of evidence into the deaths of 96 Liverpool supporters at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final. The jury heard its last evidence earlier this month.
It may not be possible to identify who used government computers to post "sickening" comments about the Hillsborough disaster, the Cabinet Office has warned.
Officials said the passage of time and number of people using the Whitehall intranet made finding those who edited Wikipedia "challenging".
Relatives' groups and Liverpool-born MP Andy Burnham, a long-term campaigner on the issue, are being drafted in to monitor the investigation, a spokeswoman said. The Liverpool Echo reported revisions to the Wikipedia began five years ago on the 20th anniversary of the tragedy, and again in 2012.
The Cabinet Office spokeswoman said: "The amendments made to Wikipedia are sickening. The behaviour is in complete contravention of the Civil Service Code. It is entirely unacceptable."
Families of those who died at Hillsborough have reacted angrily to claims that offensive remarks about the disaster were posted from government offices.
A report by the Liverpool Echo alleges computers on the secure Whitehall intranet were used to add the phrases 'Blame liverpool fans' and 'you'll never walk again' to the Hillsborough Wikipedia page.
The Cabinet Office is launching an urgent inquiry into the matter:-
