    Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield will go on trial.

    The match commander on the day of the Hillsborough disaster David Duckenfield will face trial for the manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 football supporters, a judge has ruled.

    The decision to prosecute the former chief superintendent was made by Sir Peter Openshaw at Preston Crown Court who lifted a stay on his prosecution.

    An order preventing Mr Duckenfield being tried was imposed 18 years ago.

    Four other men will also face trial on charges related to Hillsborough.

    I have no clue why this commander, and the others responsible, was not prosecuted long before this.

    Now, maybe the relatives of the ones who died might get some closure.

    Comments please.

    And not before time I say.

    I have no clue why these people were able to escape justice for so long.

    The previous inquest in 2000 found that there was not enough evidence to proceed with a proper high court trial.

    This decision has since been put aside due to allegations of lies and cover-ups from the original defence, and now a full and proper trial will proceed.

    What a load of nonsense that is.

    At least common sense has eventually prevailed.
