Labour responds to the collapse of the Hillsborough trial

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the collapse of the Hillsborough trial, said:

“The collapse of this case is devastating for the families of all those who lost loved ones at Hillsborough, everyone who was there on that tragic day and all those who have spent the last 32 years campaigning for justice for the 96.

“Five years on from the inquest that ruled fans were unlawfully killed, this shameful injustice cannot go on. It’s completely unacceptable that no successful criminal charges have been brought against any individual. The Hillsborough Law must be introduced, without further delay, to ensure proper transparency and accountability. Change is also needed – desperately – to ensure victims of injustices get the support they need.”
