Eamonn Holmes criticised after referencing Hillsborough in comments on West Ham bus attack

Sky News presenter Eamonn Holmes is under fire today after seeming to draw a comparison between last night's assault on the Man United players' bus at Upton Park and the Hillsborough disaster.

Holmes was taking part in a discussion on last night's incident, when he said: “This is going back to the '70s and to the '80s, the type of thing you were seeing that was bad about Hillsborough, for instance.”

JOE has reached out to Sky News for a comment on Holmes' remarks.

Unsurprisingly, people are outraged at the remarks, with calls on the presenter to apologise, and even for Sky to sack him.
