Hillsborough inquest: (1): The Telegraph offers some 'questions and answers' on opening day - starting with, "Why were fresh inquests ordered?"

STORY: "Hillsborough inquest: Questions and answers: The new Hillsborough inquests begin today in Warrington, almost 25 years after Britain's worst sporting disaster and 18 months after the verdicts in the original inquests were quashed," by Ben Rumsby, published by the Telegraph on March 31, 2014;

"Why were fresh inquests ordered? Twenty years after the Hillsborough disaster, following repeated attempts to force a re-examination of what went wrong and whether the truth had been covered up, the Government finally instituted the Hillsborough Independent Panel. Its report, published in September 2012, absolved Liverpool fans of any responsibility, found the police were mainly to blame and demonstrated that witness statements had been deliberately altered. It also determined up to 41 of those who died may have been saved had the emergency services response been improved. None of this had emerged during the original inquests, which controversially returned verdicts of accidental death."
