U.K. Independence Party leader Paul Nuttall was at the center of a furor Wednesday over an erroneous claim that he lost close friends in the 1989 Hillsborough football stadium disaster.Nuttall, who is standing in the Feb. 23 by-election for the parliamentary seat of Stoke-on-Trent Central in England's West Midlands, admitted Tuesday that a press release on his official website making the claim was a mistake. Nuttall apologized but dismissed suggestions that he was not even present at the match, saying he had traveled to the stadium in Sheffield aged 12 and had witnessed that day's events, in which 96 people died, "with horror".
