Hillsborough families have reacted angrily to an editorial by the former editor of The Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie, in which he appears to an about turn and admits the fans were right all along. His piece in the Spectator magazine read:
Now I know - you know, we all know - that the fans were right.
Just four days after the April 1989 disaster, The Sun ran a front-page story claiming that Liverpool fans urinated on police officers resuscitating the dying and stole from the dead.
Sue Roberts, secretary of the Hillsborough Families Support Group, accused him of "trying to turn the tables" and "excuse his role in the cover-up".
The Conservative MP Ben Gummer has criticised the apology from former Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie over the paper's "The Truth" front page in 1989:
We've had unqualified apologies from two party leaders and the police for Hillsborough, even though none directly responsible...
... Yet Kelvin Mackenzie, who was central to the scandal, can still only say sorry by hedging it with an excuse.
