Hillsborough disaster: South Yorkshire police to reopen investigation

London:

Following the report that pointed officers guilty of changing statements and falsely blaming the Liverpool fans for the 1989-stampede, the South Yorkshire police department will be reopening the investigations that would look into the allegations against its own men.


The department may also refer itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

The 195 police officers who were on duty during that fateful match are still part of the force.

In what has been described as the most horrific human tragedy in peace time by British prime minister David Cameron -- who also apologised to the victims' family for the 'injustice', 96 people were killed in stampede while attending a FA semi-final match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

In the after years, the police have tried to pass the buck 'drunken Liverpool fans' and overcrowding'at the Leppings Lane End.
