• Martin Tyler urged to clarify and apologise for Hillsborough comment made on BBC radio show • Martin Tyler apologises for Hillsborough comment and issues statement to explain • Policing of Liverpool fans at Champions League final 'linked to Hillsborough' as official report sparks outrage

Liverpool have invited both the BBC and Sky Sports to meet club representatives in an attempt to ensure clear and accurate commentary around the Hillsborough disaster going forward.

The invitation comes after Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler was forced to apologise for remarks made over the tragedy, that took the lives of 97 Liverpool fans, that appeared to compare the incident to football hooliganism.

We didn't know quite how the [new] structure of the league would work, we certainly didn't know how satellite television as it was called in those days would work.

Asked for his thoughts looking back to 1992, he made comments which could be seen as linking Hillsborough to wider 'hooligan-related issues'.

In a reply email seen by the ECHO, Sky have said Tyler accepts he should have worded his answer differently and stated he knows there is no link between the tragedy and hooliganism within football in the 1980s.
