MP: 'We need to bring this to a satisfactory conclusion'

A police watchdog has said a former chief constable could have been sacked for his actions following the publication of a damning report into the Hillsborough disaster.

Sir Norman Bettison would have a "case to answer for gross misconduct" if he was a serving officer, the IPCC found.

It concluded he tried to influence public perception as West Yorkshire Police Authority was deciding whether to refer him to the IPCC.

Alec Shelbrooke, the Conservative MP for Elmet and Rothwell, said it was "exceptionally distressing" for the families of the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the disaster.
