Inquiry needed into Bradford City fire

Published 02/05/2016

The families of those who died and were injured at Hillsborough in 1989 have finally received the result they deserved.

This is the end of an exhausting and emotional battle they should never have had to fight.

In a similar vein, 56 people died at Bradford City’s Valley Parade stadium in 1985. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, recently said she is ready to consider a Hillsborough-style independent review into that tragedy, particularly as the Bradford fire may not have been an accident.

I wish those relatives the strength to continue the fight to find the truth behind that disaster.
