Petition:

For the Home Office to hold an inquiry into the battle of Orgreave

Thousands of miners and police clashed at the Yorkshire coking site in 1984.

Campaigners said officers led by South Yorkshire Police were heavy-handed and manufactured statements.

Calls for an Orgreave inquiry escalated following the conclusion of the two-year Hillsborough inquests, which provided a scathing assessment of the under-fire South Yorkshire Police force’s behaviour.

Orgreave: The battle that’s not over

The statement added: “The campaigners say that had the consequences of the events at Orgreave been addressed properly at the time, the tragic events at Hillsborough would never have happened five years later.
