    Good news today for the Hillsborough families today. The CPS announced today that they will charge 6peopke in relation to the Hillsborough disaster and subsequent cover up.

    Amongst those charges are several police, including the match day Commander who will be charged with manslaughter by gross negligence over 95 of the deaths – due to the law at the time he is unable to be charged with the96th death that occurred 4 years after the disaster.

    Other charges are related to the lies told, the cover up, and health & safety breaches.

      Wow, what heartless person here is against justice for those killed at Hillsborough?

      Obviously someone at YourNZ is okay with the police lies & cover up in relation to Hillsborough, this person also doesn’t seem to care about the families getting justice for the police screw ups, negligence, lies, and subsequent cover up. Even worse this person disapproves of the CPS action but is too much of a coward to admit it and publicly state their support for the police lies and cover up.

      Whoever you are you should be ashamed that you have so little compassion and so much disdain for the families of the Hillsborough families, not to mention ashamed of your obvious support of the actions after the disaster.

      Obviously a fan and accolyte of the Sun.

        I take back my last sentence, even the Sun has repented on their acceptance of the lies told by the police at the time.

    The British Transport Police Officer who was stabbed by the London Bridge terrorists has spoken publicly for the first time about what happened that night.

    An extract from the article:

    “The 38-year-old, who was born in Birmingham but lives in south London, initially thought the disturbance was a pub fight that had spilled out onto the streets or maybe a gang fight “at the most”.

    He was approached by an off-duty Metropolitan Police officer who said he saw someone stabbed, and shortly afterwards Pc Marques himself witnessed people being attacked in Borough High Street near the junction with London Bridge Street.

    He said: “I remember grabbing my baton with my right hand and I racked (extended) it. I took a deep breath and I just charged the first one (attacker).”

    He added: “As I got near him I swung at him with everything I had as hard as I could, straight through his head, trying to go for like a knock-out blow.”

    He said he heard the attacker “yelp in pain”.

    Pc Marques, who has since recovered his sight after being wounded just above his right eye, was stabbed numerous times, with the major injuries to his head, left leg and left hand.

    The officer, who has worked with BTP for just under two years and was a PCSO with the Met for around six years beforehand, described the “instant darkness” when he was stabbed in the head by one of the terror trio.

    He said: “He’d hit me so hard that my right eye went lights out straight away, I just went blind.”

    In a fight that he believes lasted somewhere up to 90 seconds, Pc Marques, who had not long recovered from a football injury, was set upon by all three terrorists.”
