Manslaughter and misconduct charges for Hillsborough disaster police chiefs

SIX people are to face criminal charges over the Hillsborough disaster and its aftermath — including former Chief Supt David Duckenfield, who faces 95 charges of manslaughter by gross negligence.

Mr Duckenfield was match commander at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989, when 96 football fans died.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said it was unable to charge him with the manslaughter of Anthony (Tony) Bland, the 96th casualty, as he died almost four years later.

    Have SY Police Authority group been investigated too? This group, made up of Councillors from all 4 Authorities were supposed to oversea what the Police were doing and have input. Surely they were contacted to challenge what South Yorkshire Police were doing/did.
