Six people have been charged with criminal offences relating to the Hillsborough disaster. Among them are the former chief superintendent of South Yorkshire Police, David Duckenfield, who faces charges of manslaughter by gross negligence, and former chief constable Sir Norman Bettison, charged with misconduct in public office. Families of the 96 people who died in the disaster in 1989 gathered in Warrington to hear the decision by the Crown Prosecution Service.
