Hillsborough trial: David Duckenfield case ‘breathtakingly unfair’
It was “breathtakingly unfair” to prosecute Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield, a jury has been told.
Ben Myers QC made the claim in his closing speech at Preston Crown Court in defence of Mr Duckenfield.
The 74-year-old denies gross negligence manslaughter of 95 Liverpool fans, on 15 April 1989.
Mr Myers also said “it must be one of the most heartbreaking cases ever to come before a British court”.
The trial continues.
