Hillsborough: IPCC considers Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe disaster role probe

The watchdog probing police conduct during the Hillsborough disaster could formally investigate a complaint about the Metropolitan Police Commissioner.

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, then a South Yorkshire police officer, was on duty at Sheffield Boys’ Club where relatives waited for news of loved ones.

The IPCC said it had received a formal complaint from the family of a victim. It expects the London mayor’s office to rule it should be investigated.

Ninety-six fans died in the 1989 crush.

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime is responsible for deciding whether complaints against the commissioner should be recorded and referred to the Independenty Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

The IPCC has said it expects this matter to be recorded and referred.
