  • The former editor of The Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie, has told the BBC’s Richard Lister he was “completely duped” over the facts about the Hillsborough disaster. In 1989, when he was editor of the newspaper, The Sun’s front page accused Liverpool fans of being drunk and abusive as the tragedy unfolded. An inquest jury has found the 96 fans who died were unlawfully killed and pinpointed police failures before and after the 1989 FA Cup semi-final.
