Hillsborough: Former press officer 'spin' claim

A former South Yorkshire Police (SYP) press officer says she was asked to work as a spin doctor during the recent Hillsborough inquests.

Hayley Court claims that she was expected to persuade journalists to put the force in a better light, and says she felt the police strategy was to blame others, including the fans.

SYP said her claims of "unethical practice" were "not substantiated".
