Liverpool fans accuse club’s TV channel of covering up Hillsborough banner

Date Posted,April 30, 2017

A Liverpool supporter has accused the club’s TV channel of airbrushing out his Hillsborough banner from a recent broadcast.

The fan has demanded answers after claiming on Twitter that his banner, which calls for justice for the 96 and criticises The Sun newspaper, was painted over with a generic flag of a Liverpool FC crest, writes Tom Belger for the Liverpool Echo .

From his handle @RichieG_LFC, the Reds fan posted an image purporting to show the original banner, which reads: “We told you they lied. Don’t Buy The Scum. Justice for the 96.”

The post was widely shared by supporters on social media today.

The image features a backdrop behind an interview with former Reds striker and Echo columnist Neil Mellor, and shows a red flag with a club crest.

It is believed to have taken place at the youth academy, but it is not clear when it was shot or broadcast – or when any alteration may have been made.

One supporter, Steven Ecott, shared a letter he said he would send to club bosses.

He wrote: “I am writing in regards to a rather upsetting image involving a large video backdrop used at your youth academy.

“The backdrop uses a picture of the Kop in full glory featuring flags, banners and choreography lovingly crafted and proudly displayed by Scousers who adore our football team. Sadly one of the flags included in the backdrop had been doctored.
