The government has agreed to fund legal representation for the families of the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster after the original inquest verdict was quashed and a new one ordered.
The lord chief justice, Lord Judge, on Wednesday ruled that the original verdict of accidental death should be quashed in light of new evidence revealed by the Hillsborough Independent Panel report in September.
MP Steve Rotheram and other campaigners called on the government to fund the legal fees of the families of the victims amid concern at the likely costs.
The Commons leader, Andrew Lansley, told MPs: "The government will provide funding for the legal representation of the bereaved Hillsborough families at the fresh inquests."
Following an application by the attorney general, Dominic Grieve, in the wake of the panel's report, Lord Judge ruled it was "necessary, desirable and in the interests of justice" that a new inquest took place.

Who is JUST blaming the fans...not me ...I would just like to see someone actually admitting some fans where responsible (alongside others) for deaths in that ground , rather than this holier than tho attitude that seems soley about absolving any fan from blame that day.
I have also done it without the personal attacks that where seen above.edit on 22-12-2012 by gambon because: (no reason given)
