Around 30 people protested outside Millgarth Police Station in Leeds on Saturday of last week, in support of justice for the 96 who died in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.

They called for the dismissal and prosecution of Sir?Norman Bettison who is now head of West Yorkshire Police. He played an central role in the discredited South Yorkshire Police internal review group and liaison unit after the tragedy.

The protest was sombre, with the reading of poems and eyewitness accounts. Many passers-by stopped to listen and show support.
