Dear Colleagues,


Aftermath of Hillsborough – Appeal for witnesses


Following revelations again suggesting Police manipulation of witnesses’ evidence, the Independent Police Complaints Commission launched an inquiry into the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.


A year since it was established, the enquiry has begun recovering documents, has set up a database, recruited staff and acquired and fitted out a building. Now the enquiry is progressing with the investigation phase and witnesses are being asked to come forward.


If you were at Hillsborough on 15 April 1989 and gave a statement to Police, please contact the IPCC via this form https://secureforms.ipcc.gov.uk/Pages/form15.aspx or by calling 0300 200 0003. If you do make contact with the inquiry, please also inform the Hillsborough campaigner Danny Gordon (dannygordon@btconnect.com) that you have done so.


Yours sincerely,

Bob Crow
General Secretary
