Home Secretary orders new investigation into Hillsborough disaster

The Guardian newspaper reported the following:

“… A new police investigation into the has been announced by the home secretary.

Former Durham chief constable Jon Stoddart will lead the  inquiry, which will focus specifically on the 96 deaths of Liverpool fans at the FA Cup semi-final in 1989.

The move came after a damning report from the Hillsborough independent panel laid bare a coverup that attempted to shift the blame for the tragedy on to its victims.

The home secretary, Theresa May, said: “I am determined to see a swift and thorough response to the findings of the Hillsborough panel to deliver justice for the 96 football fans who died and the families who have fought so hard on their behalf.”

“The findings of the Hillsborough independent panel were truly shocking, but while the families have now been given the truth, they have not yet received justice…”

This website is also calling for justice for Brian Pead, who was unfairly and unlawfully dismissed from his post as Head teacher of a Pupil Referral Unit in Lambeth.
