HM Courts Service A man who wore a bad taste T-shirt mocking Liverpool fans who died in the Hillsborough disaster has been fined £795.

Paul Grange admitted a public order offence and told Worcester magistrates that he was ashamed of what he had done and had deservedly lost his home, job, friends and relationship.

Grange pleaded guilty to a charge of displaying abusive writing likely to cause distress. His T-shirt had the slogan: Hillsborough, God’s way of helping Rentokill.

Images of the shirt, which Grange wore in a pub beer garden in May, had been said to have caused ‘outrage’ on social media.
