'The Times' mentions Hillsborough on front cover of second edition - but is it enough?

The victims of the Hillsborough tragedy finally have justice, but there is still some cause for anger.

Most national papers handled the news tactfully, carrying an announcement of the verdict on their front pages, but the two notable exceptions were The Sun and The Times.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer has hit out at the former for giving out free newspapers at Manchester Airport on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, The Times has since amended its front page to include coverage of the Hillsborough story, but many believe it's too little too late.

And even the new version isn't enough for a lot of people.
