MP on Hillsborough: 'We are still frozen in grief'

Wirral South MP Alison McGovern made an emotional speech calling for the truth about the Hillsborough disaster to finally be "fully acknowledged".

Ms McGovern told the House she was eight at the time of the disaster, but few other events had had such an impact on her life or that of the community.

She said media coverage and failures in the justice system meant people were, "still frozen in those early stages of grief in the awful horror of it".
