Apology over Hillsborough disaster

The prime minister has said he is "profoundly sorry" for what he called the double injustice of the Hillsborough disaster.

David Cameron was addressing the House of Commons following an independent report into previously unseen documents about what happened on 15 April 1989.

The report criticised the authorities for compromising safety at every level, and delivered a devastating verdict on the police and emergency services, saying lives could have been saved.

96 fans died after a crush at the Leppings Lane End of Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough stadium.
