Hillsborough: 1,444 police names passed to IPCC

The names of 1,444 former and serving police officers have been passed to the Independent Police Complaints Commission as part of its investigation into the Hillsborough disaster.

Home Affairs Committee chairman Keith Vaz told MPs the "huge number" had been revealed to him in a letter from South Yorkshire Police's chief constable.

Home Secretary Theresa May said said the number showed the "enormity" of the investigation.

Talks were under way about resourcing it properly, she added.
