West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner supports inquiry into Orgreave (16 May 2016)

Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner, said: "I do support a proper inquiry into Orgreave.

"This is quite personal to me as many of my friends were miners on the picket lines at the time and so I absolutely support a thorough inquiry into what happened at Orgreave which I believe goes much further than just the role of police to the Government of the day.

"We need to get to the truth of what happened."
