It's been reported that Liverpool Football Club have banned The Sun newspaper from their grounds after their coverage of the Hillsborough disaster.

They won't be allowed to report on matches from Anfield and be given no access to interview players.

According to the Liverpool Echo, talks have been taking place between club officials and the Total Eclipse Of The Sun group, who've been calling for the paper to be banned.

The campaign gathered pace after an inquest ruled there was no wrongdoing on the part of supporters at Hillsborough when the disaster took place in 1989.

It was after the newspaper released an article shortly after the incident, which 96 Liverpool fans died, accusing supporters of pick-pocketing the dead and obstructing the emergency services which was labelled as 'The Truth'.

In a statement, The Sun have said: "The Sun and Liverpool FC have had a solid working relationship for the 28 years since the Hillsborough tragedy.

"Banning journalists from a club is bad for fans and bad for football.

"The Sun can reassure readers this won’t affect our full football coverage."
