THE UK’S House of Commons has this evening voted unanimously passed a motion calling for the release of all government documents relating to the Hillsborough Stadium disaster in 1989, in which 96 Liverpool fans were killed. The motion, which was triggered by a public petition, calls for the documents – including Cabinet minutes – to be released in an unedited format to the families of the 96 victims and the Hillsborough Independent Panel.
