Hillsborough families welcome Bettison departure

The chief constable of West Yorkshire Police, who was named in a report last month on the Hillsborough disaster, is to retire next March.

The families of victims of the Hillsborough disaster have welcomed the announcement.

Sir Norman Bettison has always denied taking part in a cover-up of police failings and said he hoped his departure would allow the Independent Police Complaints Commission to examine his conduct thoroughly.
