Practice Areas

Personal Injury

Keith Morton QC, Tim Sharpe, Robert Riddell and Elizabeth Gallagher are instructed by the Head of Legal Services at South Yorkshire Police in connection with the Group Litigation Order (“GLO”) granted in November 2016.

The GLO issues include consideration of whether officers of South Yorkshire Police and/or of the West Midlands Police sought to deliberately conceal the true circumstances of the Hillsborough tragedy in order to deflect blame, liability or censure away from the police, and/or whether they sought to establish what is alleged to be a false narrative of events leading up to the tragedy, and whether those actions amounted to the tort of misfeasance in public office.
