New Hillsborough inquests ordered

The High Court has quashed the original inquest verdicts returned on 96 Liverpool football fans who died in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.

The Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge ordered fresh inquests following an application by the Attorney General.

The Home Secretary Theresa May has also announced a new police inquiry into the disaster, to re-examine what happened in April 1989.
