Hillsborough: Tony Bland's family 'upset' at no charges

The family of the 96th Hillsborough victim Tony Bland have said they are very upset that nobody will be prosecuted over his death.

Mr Bland, from Keighley, West Yorkshire, was left in a persistent vegetative state after a crush on the Leppings Lane terrace at Sheffield Wednesday's stadium during the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989.

He died nearly four years later.

Former Ch Supt David Duckenfield, who faces 95 charges of manslaughter by gross negligence, cannot be charged over Mr Bland's death as too much time had passed.
