A police officer has apologised for a tweet about the Liverpool car park fire which has been construed as a reference to the Hillsborough disaster.

Northumbria Police received complaints after Curtis Ritchie, a serving constable, posted a message saying: 'Have they started blaming the police yet????'

One person contacted the force to express concern, claiming it was a 'disparaging remark' about people from Liverpool.
