Liverpool fans angered by Eastenders
The volume of complaints from Liverpool forced the BBC to apologise for dialogue in this week's EastEnders that was interpreted as blaming hooliganism for the Hillsborough disaster.
A BBC spokesman said: "Minty was reminding Jase that football hooliganism at Heysel led directly to the fencing-in of fans. He points out that this had tragic consequences for the innocent spectators at Hillsborough.
"The BBC apologise if this remark was misinterpreted or caused any offence."
