Hillsborough Disaster: Leaked Documents - Merseyside Police implicated Liverpool Fans

[indent]Documents leaked to the BBC include a letter sent to the then Prime Minister from a member of her policy unit in Downing Street. Four days after the disaster the letter’s writer attended a meeting with Sir Kenneth Oxford, the then Chief Constable of Merseyside Police, and some of his senior colleagues. According to the letter Sir Kenneth said: “A key factor in causing the disaster was the fact that large numbers of Liverpool fans had turned up without tickets. This was getting lost sight of in attempts to blame the police, the football authorities, etc”

The Prime Minister was also informed that an unnamed senior member of Merseyside Police laid the blame with Liverpool supporters. “One officer, born and bred in Liverpool, said that he was deeply ashamed to say that it was drunken Liverpool fans who had caused this disaster, just as they had caused the deaths at Heysel,” the letter said.
