Barrister Henrietta Hill QC talks about...

...the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and how there is still a long way to go even though the verdict says there will be no inquiry.

Henrietta Hill QC is the legal counsel for the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and when she gave a lecture to law students at the University she said that the episode was still highly relevant.  She drew parallels with police conduct in the wake of the Hillsborough disaster, alleging a “culture of impunity” within the South Yorkshire force. 

“For many of the Hillsborough families, Orgreave is unfinished business, because if Orgreave had been dealt with properly there might not have been the cover up that we saw after Hillsborough,” said Ms Hill.

You can watch her talk further about the enquiry in the video.
