Justice for Hillsborough

Campaigners said today But Hillsborough Families Support Group member Trevor Hicks, who lost two daughters at Hillsborough, said they would now press for criminal action against those involved in the disaster.

Trevor Hicks continued ``The truth is out today, justice starts tomorrow.'' Mr Hicks said the Hillsborough Independent Panel's report revealed shocking ``depths of depravity'' in the way the police tried to blame the fans after the disaster. He said the report showed that ``possibly as many as 41 people might have survived'' if the disaster had been better handled. 

He also rejected the ``profuse apologies'' offered by Kelvin MacKenzie, who was the editor of The Sun when it ran a front page story blaming fans for Hillsborough. Mr MacKenzie, who wrote the headline The Truth on the controversial report, said in a statement: ``Today I offer my profuse apologies to the people of Liverpool for that headline. ``I too was totally misled. Twenty three ago I was handed a piece of copy from a reputable news agency in Sheffield in which a senior police officer and a senior local MP were making serious allegations against fans in the stadium.'' But Mr Hicks said Mr MacKenzie's words were ``too little, too late'', calling him ``lowlife, clever lowlife, but lowlife''.
