THE former North West Development Agency (NWDA) building is set to be the home of an inquiry into police conduct during the Hillsborough disaster.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) confirmed Renaissance House, Centre Park, is being equipped to hold up to 100 people recruited for the investigation.

The inquiry will look into up to 2,400 officers who were on duty when 96 Liverpool fans died in 1989 and whether there was a criminal cover-up of police failings.

The NWDA has been empty since the organisation was closed last April with the loss of 500 jobs.
