      'Hillsborough Law' backed by chief coroner
      Jul 26, 2016 06:02:03 pm
      Families of the 96 should be given legal aid at the inquests in which police or public bodies are involved, the chief coroner for England and Wales has said.
      Peter Thornton QC will include the recommendation in his annual report.

      Shadow home secretary Andy Burnham called for a Hillsborough Law after the families' 27 year fight for justice.

      The government said funding support was available ''in the most important cases'' and more than £1.5m was spent on legal aid last year.

      Tory rebel joins bid to get victim's families financial help with investigating police procedure at Hillsborough.
      Charles Walker MP says the families of the 96 should be awarded the same legal representation as the police who get the very best lawyers available to pursue their interests in court.
