MP Alison McGovern emotional at Hillsborough debate

Alison McGovern MP has made an emotional tribute to the families of the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster in the House of Commons.

MPs were debating the Independent Hillsborough Panel Report, which last month found police and emergency services had made "strenuous attempts" to deflect the blame for the disaster onto fans.

The MP for Wirral South prefaced her closing words "about love" by saying: "This issue is very difficult, and I have previously found it hard to get my words out."
