Recent from Channel 4 News:

  • At least two killed in Myanmar after anti-coup protests
  • England care homes residents to be allowed one visitor from March
  • Texas Senator Ted Cruz apologises over trip to Mexico during weather crisis
  • Yesterday, South Yorkshire Police lost its Chief Constable when David Crompton resigned. Now the force faces a class action lawsuit from the families of the Hillsborough disaster victims, angry at what they say was a “widespread police cover up”.

    With trust in the force shattered by a series of scandals over the last three decades, there’s speculation it may be disbanded entirely.

    Our Chief Correspondent, Alex Thomson, has spent the day in Sheffield, to see what the people who pay for the force think.
