Appeal for new Hillsborough verdicts lodged

Attorney General Dominic Grieve has lodged a High Court application to quash the original Hillsborough verdicts and hold new inquests.

The families of the 96 victims have campaigned tirelessly against the original ruling of accidental death and Grieve believes they have a strong case.

The decision comes in the wake of the recent report on the 1989 tragedy at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough stadium, which revealed a police cover-up attempting to shift the blame to the victims.

Grieve announced in October that he would make an application for fresh inquests after reviewing the evidence.

He confirmed the application had been made on Tuesday.

“I believe that the case for the High Court to quash the original inquests is a good one,” he said.

“My application has now been lodged with the Court. It is my intention to appear to argue the case at the hearing that will take place in the High Court.”
