The police watchdog's going to investigate complaints about the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police - its in relation to the Hillsbrough inquiry.

One of the claims they're looking into is that Sir Norman Bettison misled various inquiries into the tragedy since it happened in 1989....

There's also been a complaint about a public statement he made last week - when the latest inquiry criticised the way the force dealt with the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans

The IPCC confirmed it had received a referral from the West Yorkshire Police Authority following complaints from members of the public about Sir Norman being ``involved in the production and supply of misleading information for the various inquiries that have been undertaken into the Hillsborough disaster''.

He said the Liverpool fans' behaviour made policing at the tragedy in 1989 ``harder than it needed to be''.
