Hillsborough inquests: Police accounts 'were amended'

Police accounts of the Hillsborough disaster were amended to remove negative comments about senior officers, a coroner has said.

Lord Justice Goldring said the jury at the inquests into the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans will have to consider whether the changes were ordered to deflect criticism or blame fans.

The disaster took place in April 1989 during an FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.
