Hillsborough match commander to face retrial
Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield is to face a retrial over the deaths of 95 football fans at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final.
In April, a jury failed to reach a verdict on the former South Yorkshire Police chief superintendent, who had denied gross negligence manslaughter.
Lawyers acting for Mr Duckenfield, 74, of Ferndown in Dorset, opposed an application for a retrial, but Judge Sir Peter Openshaw ruled in favour.
The trial is due to start on October 7 at Preston Crown Court.
