as I said
Those reports were based on leaks from SYP which were designed to provide cover for the fact a number of police had been boasting about what they had stolen from the dead and injured.
As to whether the sometime Chief Constable of Merseyside and current chief constable of West Yorkshire* was the person who leaked I don't know but I do know he was consulted about whether to shred the evidence withheld from the first enquiry by the SYP solicitors.
Some blame goes to the Sun for publishing the reports but it was police doing the nickage and the police covering up that and the rest of the mess.
*who incidently annoys me by claiming to the oxford educated when he took his first degree at Sheffield Poly and only took some poxy unfailable civil service masters (designed to make sure the peasants at least know how to hold a knife and fork) at Oxford.
