West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper says today’s ruling will offer the families involved in the Hillsborough tragedy some solace as it brings justice for the 96 one step closer.
The significant decision follows on from last year’s inquest which ruled that 96 football fans were unlawfully killed.
MP Rosie Cooper stated:
“Today’s verdict to press criminal charges against six people involved in the tragedy at Hillsborough reflects the families determination never to give up on the long road to justice which they have had to endure for the nearly three decades.
"The decision to charge six involved will allow justice to draw ever nearer for the 96, as people will be held to account in court for their actions on that fateful day."
