هیلزبورور: 15 آپریل 1989
On April 15, 1989, ninety-six children, men and women lost their lives at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough stadium.
Following a tireless campaign led by bereaved families and survivors, in 2012 the High Court quashed the original accidental death verdicts and ordered new inquests which would go on to become the longest running in British legal history.
On April 26, 2016, the jury returned verdicts of unlawful killing in relation to each Hillsborough victim, vindicating all those who fought so courageously for the truth for so long.
Our thoughts are always with those who continue to be affected by the tragedy and the 96 Liverpool supporters who went to watch their team and never came home.
