Hillsborough families 'had 23 years of waiting'


Relatives of those killed in the Hillsborough disaster have said the new investigation into the tragedy should be done properly.

"We've had 23 years of waiting. I'm now an old age pensioner," Margaret Aspinall, of the Hillsborough Families Support Group told the BBC.

The IPCC police watchdog and director of public prosecutions say they will both launch inquiries into possible crimes committed by police, following damning reports into the disaster.

The IPCC said both serving and former officers would be investigated over the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans in 1989.

They will consider if individuals or corporate bodies should be charged.
