Hillsborough Facebook site investigated by police


A Facebook page which mocked the Hillsborough football tragedy is being investigated by police. The page allegedly pointed fun at the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans who were crushed to death at an FA Cup semi-final in April 1989.

According to reports, it went online for a week and received 125 "likes" before being removed by Facebook following complaints forwarded by police. A spokeswoman for Merseyside Police said detectives from the force's hi-tech crime unit were investigating.

Facebook said the page had been removed.
