Hillsborough disaster: 'Don't be fooled by justice 23 years on'

"Don't let's be fooled by justice 23 years down the line" for the Hillsborough victims, the father of one them has told the deputy prime minister.

Barry Devonside told Nick Clegg if you "fight against the system, it's a time situation and it goes on and on and on".

He described searching for his 18-year-old son on the day of the Hillsborough disaster and not finding out where he was until 11pm.

He was speaking to Nick Clegg on the day that it was announced there would be an independent investigation into police wrongdoing.

The IPCC police watchdog and director of public prosecutions have announced they will both launch inquiries into possible crimes committed by police.

The IPCC said both serving and former officers would be investigated over the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans in 1989.

The Hillsborough Family Support Group said it was "too good to be true".
