New Hillsborough inquest urged
Soccer: A formal application to quash the verdicts of the original Hillsborough inquests has been made by Attorney General Dominic Grieve.
The Government's top lawyer believes there is a "good" case for setting aside the accidental death verdicts and holding new hearings into the deaths of the 96 Liverpool supporters killed at Sheffield Wednesday's ground in 1989.
The latest move follows a damning report into the tragedy revealed a cover-up which attempted to shift the blame on to the victims.
Mr Grieve is planning to appear in person at the High Court to argue that new evidence means fresh inquests should be held.
"I believe that the case for the High Court to quash the original inquests is a good one," he said. "My application has now been lodged with the Court. It is my intention to appear to argue the case at the hearing that will take place in the High Court."
