@prodnose [ aka Danny Baker ] tweeted today in response to the release of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report into the death of ninety-six fans after a crush at Sheffield Wednesday’s football ground on 15 April 1989. Mackenzie was the editor of the Sun newspaper (left) which rubbished the behaviour of football fans and attributed to them the greatest share of the blame for the fatalities. This version of events has been overturned in its entirety by the report released this week.” Mackenzie’s apology duly arrived at around 2:50pm via a Radio 5 live broadcast and was immediately rebuffed by a spokesperson for the families of the victims.
