PM’s Hillsborough apology

Have your say

PRIME Minister David Cameron has issued an apology to families of Hillsborough victims after remarks he made about them in a newspaper interview.

Mr Cameron said the campaign for justice by the Hillsborough families was ‘like a blind man, in a dark room, looking for a black cat that isn’t there’ - adding the Government was not being given enough credit for deciding to release all the documents about the 1989 disaster.

His apology followed criticism by Labour MPs representing seats on Merseyside.

Liverpool Wavertree MP Luciana Berger MP wrote to him to protest.

She said: “Your comments are deeply offensive to the families who lost loved ones twenty two years ago and continue to fight to find out the truth of what happened that day.”
