MP's tearful tribute to Hillsborough 96


Labour MP Steve Rotheram, who led a Commons debate on the Hillsborough disaster, was moved to tears as he read out the names of the people who died.

The former mayor of Liverpool said there had been a campaign to blame Liverpool fans and he called on the prime minister to issue a formal apology.

Home Secretary Theresa May told MPs the government supported the release of all papers, via an independent panel.

The debate was sparked by 140,000 people signing an e-petition.
