Stephen Bush and Anoosh Chakelian discuss the acquittal of two former police officers charged with perverting the course of justice by allegedly altering police statements to an inquiry after the Hillsborough disaster.

Now a judge has ruled there was 'no case to answer' since the inquiry was 'an administrative exercise' and the accused were not under oath at the time, Stephen and Anoosh ask: what is the point of public inquiries?

Then, in You Ask Us, they take your questions on Keir Starmer's emotional appearance on Piers Morgan's Life Stories.
