MPs to debate Hillsborough document release

Calls for the full release of documents relating to the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster in which 96 Liverpool fans died are to be debated by MPs later.

The debate was triggered by an e-petition supported by more than 139,000 people. Families of the victims have long called for the release of 40,000 documents relating to events at the FA Cup semi-final match and its aftermath.

The government has said it is committed to "full public disclosure".
