The police watchdog will pursue concerns that families of the victims of the Hillsborough disaster were spied on – if evidence emerges.

Home Secretary Theresa May said the Independent Police Complaints Commission had received no formal complaint but was aware of concerns which have been voiced.

Mrs May said: “If they discover any evidence in their investigation that suggests surveillance may have taken place of the sort that’s been suggested then they will of course pursue that evidence.”
