Police chiefs face mass damages claim from Hillsborough families

A damages action brought by 465 people over the police “cover up” in the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster has reached the High Court.

Their lawyers have applied for a group litigation order (GLO) as the most efficient and cost-effective way to manage the claim for misfeasance in public office against the chief constables of South Yorkshire Police and West Midlands Police.

The claimants are either relatives of the 96 Liverpool supporters who died as a result of the crush at the stadium in April 1989 – or those who were present and survived, or their family members.

    If its upheld, guess who is going to pay. I predict my portion of the Police precept, inside the Council Tax, is about to rise to the maximum again. Mr PCC has a good record of putting up the police Tax

  2. Yes the public will have to pay, not the Chief Constables. They should be brought to task and made to pay whatever they have, before the public purse is used. They were paid at a very good level for the job and obviously knew the truth and ignored it, They are paid to do a job, a job they did not do. How many Chief Constables of South Yorkshire were involved?

  3. Caven Vines says:

    The legal cost to the tax payer for the police at the inquest was over £18 Million
    Now how much is this going to cost the tax payers of South Yorkshire for their legal costs ???

      Its a disgrace they have had to wait so long for justice after the killing of their loved ones due to police corporate negligence and a coverup. Not to mention politicians sitting on their hands for years and the disgusting murdoch scum rag.

      The money will not recompense them for the suffering they have had to endure and the pain of losing family. RIP
