Rotherham councillors have called on South Yorkshire Police to apologise for ‘misconduct’ relating to the Battle of Orgreave.
A motion was passed at a full meeting of Rotherham Council yesterday asking for both for the apology and calling on an independent public inquiry into the events of 31 years ago to be ordered by the Government.
It follows the Independent Police Complaints Commission saying it could not investigate the matter.
