Speaking after the announcement of the Hillsborough Inquiry jury’s verdicts on the 14 questions they were asked to consider, West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Today’s verdict that the 96 Hillsborough victims were unlawfully killed is the first step towards justice.
“This is a landmark day in the fight for justice for the 96 who died at Hillsborough, their families and their friends.
“Righting the wrongs of previous inquiries that dismissed the truth.
“The jury’s verdict reiterated the truth of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report and the truth it revealed. The absolute and resounding vindication of the Liverpool FC fans and their conduct that was so disgustingly misrepresented for far too many years.
“In these verdicts there is finally a recorded judgement on the failures of the responsible agencies, whether police, ambulance services or all those responsible for stadium safety.
“Following this inquest the criminal investigations will continue and it is here that the ultimate justice for the 96 will be served, but for now the fight for that justice for the 96 will continue.”

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has cleared up the parking enforcement confusion on New Court Way in Ormskirk following questions raised by business owners.
MP Rosie received complaints from local businesses regarding the parking situation on New Court Way. Cars parked on both sides of the road. Cars also parked on the bend reducing visibility and making it less safe for pedestrians crossing from Station Road to Railway Approach. A route used by families walking to school.
Having raised the matter with Lancashire County Council it transpired that the yellow lines were not of a standard to allow parking enforcement. This prevented authorities from taking any action against parked vehicles.
The yellow lines will now be repainted to bring them up to standard. Once the work is completed enforcement of the restrictions on New Court Way will start again and penalty charge notices will be issued to offenders.
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“In search of free parking some motorists have been parking on New Court Way causing problems for local business owners.
“Lancashire County Council’s action to repaint the lines should ensure cars parked on yellow lines will receive a ticket.
“Local motorists need to be aware that repainting the lines will mean action can be taken against motorists ignoring the parking restrictions, in some cases causing problems for local businesses.”

As April marks Bowel Cancer Awareness Month Rosie Cooper, MP for West Lancashire, is supporting a call by leading research charity Bowel Cancer UK, urging more people to take part in bowel cancer screening and help save lives.
Bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in the UK, affecting both men and women. Every year over 41,000 people (one every 15 minutes) are diagnosed with bowel cancer and 16,200 people die of the disease.
Bowel cancer screening can save lives but at the moment in some areas of the UK only a third of those who receive a test complete it. Thousands of people are missing out on the chance to detect bowel cancer early when it is easier to treat.
Rosie Cooper MP said:
“As the local MP, I am totally committed to improving uptake rates for bowel cancer screening, both locally and nationally.
“I would urge my West Lancashire residents who are sent a bowel screening test to use it. Taking part in bowel cancer screening is the best way to get diagnosed early. If you are over 60, take the test when you receive it in the post. If you are younger, tell the people over 60 in your life to take the test. Early diagnosis really can save lives.”
Deborah Alsina, Chief Executive of Bowel Cancer UK, said:
“I’d like to thank Rosie Cooper MP for supporting our campaign during Bowel Cancer Awareness Month to raise participation levels for bowel cancer screening.
“One in 14 men and one in 19 women will be diagnosed with bowel cancer during their lifetime but it is treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.”
The NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme (and its equivalent in each of the home nations) can detect bowel cancer at an early stage in people with no symptoms when it is easier to treat. Since its launch 10 years ago, it has been proven to save lives. If you’re registered with a GP and aged 60-74, you will receive a test in the post every two years. You carry out the simple test at home in private and it comes with step by step instructions. The test looks for hidden blood in your poo, which could be an early sign of bowel cancer.
