The chief constable of South Yorkshire Police has been suspended in the wake of the Hillsborough inquest findings.
On Tuesday, David Crompton admitted the force got the policing of the match 'catastrophically wrong' and 'unequivocally' accepted the inquest jury's conclusions.
His suspension comes after the jury found that 96 Liverpool fans were unlawfully killed.
South Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings said he had no choice but to act 'based on the erosion of public trust and confidence'.
