Hillsborough: Andy Burnham on Labour help for families

Labour MP Andy Burnham asked why his own party did not do more to help the Hillsborough families and said "everyone needs to look at themselves and see what they did or did not do."

He said the prime minister was "outstanding in the House of Commons" on Wednesday and was praised on Merseyside.

Mr Burnham was asked about comments by Jack Straw which criticised the Thatcher government over the Hillsborough tragedy, and he told Andrew Neil about calls to overturn the inquest verdicts of accidental death.

Guest Esther Rantzen said the media has "huge questions to answer" for allowing a cover up.
