A street in the city of Liverpool called Duckinfield Street has been renamed 'Truth Street' overnight with a touch of paint.

The move, of course, is linked to the fact that former Chief Superintendent David Duckenfield was the match commander on at Hillsborough on the day of the disaster that claimed the lives of 96 Liverpool fans.

The jurors at the inquests this week ruled that the 96 Liverpool fans were unlawfully killed after being told by the coroner they could only reach that conclusion if they were satisfied that Mr Duckenfield owed a duty of care to those who died, that he was in breach of that duty of care, that his breach caused the deaths and that it amounted to "gross negligence".

He has already been interviewed under criminal caution.

When asked at the inquests if his negligence caused the disaster, he said he would not use that word and instead classed it as an "oversight".
