Former Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie has instructed solicitors to demand an \"apology and recompense\" from South Yorkshire Police over the newspaper's discredited reporting of the Hillsborough disaster.
Mr MacKenzie, writing in tomorrow's Spectator magazine, said he suffered "personal vilification for decades" as a result of the Sun's famous front-page story which ran four days after the tragedy in April 1989.
The article, headlined "The Truth", included claims that Liverpool fans urinated on police officers resuscitating the dying and stole from the dead.
