Press reports suggest Home Secretary has decided to establish an Orgreave inquiry


On Tuesday of this week the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign (OTJC) met with Home Secretary Amber Rudd to discuss an official inquiry into alleged serious police misconduct at and after the ‘Battle of Orgreave’.  Reaction to the meeting was very positive, with Ms Rudd promising the OTJC that a decision would be made as to whether an inquiry would be held by the end of October 2016.


 Henrietta Hill QC, co-author of the submission calling for an inquiry, spoke to Carolyn Quinn on BBC Radio 4 (19 minutes in) shortly after the meeting.  Press coverage in The BBC; The Star; Belfast Telegraph; Yorkshire Post; Liverpool Echo; Labour List; and Express.
