Controversial former Sun-editor Kelvin Mackenzie this week stirred fresh anger and disbelief when he revealed he wanted an apology from South Yorkshire Police for his treatment following the Hillsborough Disaster.
South Yorkshire Police have responded quickly by saying they have no intention at all of apologising to Mackenzie for the headline he chose to write on the newspaper he edited.
David Crompton, chief constable of South Yorkshire Police issued a statement saying:
"South Yorkshire Police have received a letter from Kelvin MacKenzie's lawyers, which demands the force makes an apology to him.
"We have publicly apologised to the Hillsborough families and the Liverpool fans but we will not apologise to Mr MacKenzie.
"He chose to write his own headline and he should accept responsibility for it."
Quite right too.
