The country is amazing, How can someone get away with a national incident for 23 years?

I will gladly bow down to each person individually.... Fought against the media and the police, and won, The least they could get after the trauma they have been through.

Still can't believe how the people at fault got away with it for 23 years.

Take 50 minutes and watch the itv documentary.


What an absolute legend of a man Trevor Hicks is.....he talks about losing his 2 teenage daughter that day, and today He was there after 23 years. His daughters must be proud of their dad today.

I had tears in my eyes watching that documentary....

I have been to a football game, where people went to football and never returned. I was in the stadium for Iran-Japan game in WC qualifiers in 2005....the stadium was packed (100k) , I was 14 at the time. My dad, me, and my mom's cousin drove a few hours to get to the stadium.

The game kick off was at 6 PM, but the stadium was packed at 12 PM.

You couldn't even pee, people were standing every where, even on the projector. It was a great game....

After game was over, we noticed how some people are rushing to exit. Thankfully my dad told me not to move. just sit until everyone is gone, and then we go.

1 hour later, in street's traffic, we heard on the radio, that 7 people were killed and never made it home. They died under crowd pressure.

it included 2 cousins, a dad, a grandpa and his 10 year old grandson, and a couple of more.

Of course, the size of that tragedy was minimal compared to Hillsborough, but you don't know how things are in mass crowd unless you actually experience it.

Disgrace that it took 23 years, for these findings to be unveiled though

I have also seen an AC Milan kit with "Justice 96" on the back, but I cannot find a picture of it currently.


Rangers Statement:
FOLLOWING today’s Independent Panel Report Rangers Football Club would like to send its support to the families who lost loved ones and everyone affected by the Hillsborough Disaster on April 15, 1989.

Rangers Chief Executive Charles Green said: “On this significant day our thoughts are with the families of the 96 people who lost their lives, the survivors and the Liverpool supporters.

“It is completely unimaginable that 96 people could attend a football match and never return home and I know the Rangers family feel the same following the loss of 66 Rangers supporters who lost their lives in the 1971 Ibrox Disaster.

“Rangers and Liverpool fans have a strong bond as they have united to commemorate the tragedies that have sadly marked the history of both clubs.

"We hope the independent report released today will help to bring some level of comfort now the truth about what happened that terrible day 23 years ago is known.”


Celtic Statement:
CELTIC Football Club would like to send its support to the city of Liverpool, Liverpool Football Club and, most importantly, to the families of the 96 people who died in the Hillsborough disaster on April 15, 1989.

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: “There has always been a strong bond between Celtic and Liverpool FC, and between supporters of both clubs, and the Celtic family has long supported the campaign for Justice for the 96.

“On this important day, when previously unseen official documents have been released for the first time, the hope is that it will bring justice, and the truth about what happened at Hillsborough, a step closer for all those involved.

“As always, our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of those who lost loved ones on that tragic day when 96 people went to a football match and did not return home."


And a very touching incident from the week following the catastrophe:

^ That was at Sheffield's memorial.

The FA's statement.


The Football Association commends the work of the Hillsborough Independent Panel.
"Having thoroughly reviewed yesterday's report in full, The Football Association would like to commend the Hillsborough Independent Panel for their exhaustive and professional work.

"It is also important that The FA recognises the tireless commitment shown by so many, particularly the Hillsborough Family Support Group.

"We welcome the publication of the report and the subsequent comments of the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition.

"The FA reiterates its deep and ongoing sadness at the dreadful events that unfolded on 15 April 1989.

"The organisation's thoughts at this time remains with the families of all those who lost their lives in such terrible circumstances, as well as everyone connected with the City of Liverpool.

"For 23 years the families have suffered unbearable pain, and we have profound sympathy for this.

"The FA has cooperated fully with the Panel throughout this process and has released all documentation in line with their request.

"The FA and English football has changed immeasurably, and has learnt many lessons in the last 23 years. Through advancements in safety and investment in facilities English football is now a much safer, more welcoming environment for supporters.”

Another great step on the road to justice.

Relatives of the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster have said they feel vindicated in their 23-year campaign for justice after the original inquest verdict of accidental death was quashed in the high court.

The landmark verdict clears the way for a new inquest into the deaths next year, re-examining the roles of the police and other emergency services, Sheffield council and Sheffield Wednesday Football Club, and leading to the possibility of new verdicts of unlawful killing.

The lord chief justice said it was "inevitable" that the emergence of fresh evidence about how and why the 96 victims died made it "desirable and reasonable for a fresh inquest to be heard".

"However distressing or unpalatable, the truth will be brought to light," Lord Judge said. "In this way, the families of those who died in the disaster will be properly respected. Our earnest wish is the new inquest will not be delayed for a moment longer than necessary."

The decision came as a new police investigation into the disaster was announced by the home secretary, Theresa May. The former Durham chief constable Jon Stoddart will lead the new inquiry and liaise with a parallel Independent Police Complaints Commission review.

The application by the attorney general, Dominic Grieve, to quash the original verdicts was made in the wake of the publication in September of the Hillsborough Independent Panel (HIP) report and accepted by three high court judges.

New medical evidence revealed that 58 victims "definitely or probably" had the capacity to survive beyond the 3.15pm cut-off point imposed by the original coroner, Dr Stefan Popper. In a further 12 cases, the cause of death remained unclear.

Grieve said the application was unopposed and supported by all the families and the defendants, the coroner for South Yorkshire and the coroner for West Yorkshire.

The original coroner said that no evidence gathered after 3.15pm, when the first ambulance arrived on the pitch, would be considered because he believed that by that point all 96 victims were already dead. As a result, the role of the police and the emergency services in the aftermath of the disaster was not considered.

The attorney general told the court that medical evidence from Dr Bill Kirkup and Prof Jack Crane formed "the essential basis" for his application, meaning that the premise of the original inquest was unsustainable.

"The new medical evidence presented by the panel's report leads to the conclusion that justice has not been done," he said.

The lord chief justice said there was "ample evidence to suggest that the 3.15pm cut-off was seriously flawed" and that was sufficient on its own to justify the quashing of the original inquest.

It raised new questions about the conduct of police and the emergency services, he said.

But he said there were other reasons for ordering a new inquest, including the 116 amendments to police statements designed to cast them in a better light, and new evidence about the safety of the stadium.

Set up to reconsider all evidence relating to the disaster, including new documents made available for the first time, the HIP report raised serious concerns about the adequacy of the original inquest in Sheffield in 1990.

The review found that the decision to impose the cut-off severely limited examination of the response of the police and emergency services to the disaster on 15 April 1989, in which 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death in the Leppings Lane end of the stadium, and "raised profound concerns regarding sufficiency of inquiry and examination of evidence".

The lord chief justice agreed, saying that "in our judgment the 3.15pm cut-off point provided not only the most dramatic but also the most distressing aspect" of the new evidence.

"In short, the unchallenged evidence of pathologists at the Taylor inquiry and the subsequent inquest is no longer accepted," he said.

The original verdict of accidental death, delivered by a jury in March 1991 following the longest inquest in British legal history, has been a running sore for the families of those killed in the disaster, who felt the inquest was wholly inadequate.

Many of the relatives of those killed were present on Wednesday in court five of the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand or watching via videolink in an adjacent courtroom. Some held pictures of their relatives and others carried Liverpool scarves.

Trevor Hicks, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, said afterwards: "Justice is on its way. Everything we've said has been proven to be correct."

Some of the MPs who campaigned for a new investigation of the full facts surrounding the disaster, including Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram, watched from the public gallery. In Liverpool, another 150 relatives watched via videolink at the civil and family courts.

"I was very pleased that he opened up the whole question of the years preceding Hillsborough and ground safety," said Burnham.

"That seems to me to be absolutely the key question of the new inquest. Should this have been prevented? We've always argued it should. Was it an accident? We've always argued it was not. He's set that up now. I'm overwhelmed with the strength of his ruling."

Rotheram said families who lost relatives in the Hillsborough disaster have said the state should meet the cost of any new inquest.

"This verdict marks the beginning of the end of the Hillsborough disaster. At long last the families have achieved their ultimate goal which is to change the verdict on the death certificates," he said.

Hillsborough: Matches to kick off seven minutes late on 11-14 April
Every match in the top five leagues in England will kick off seven minutes late on 11-14 April to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

Fixtures include the FA Cup semi-final on 12 April between Wigan and Arsenal, which will start at 17:07 BST.

Hull face Sheffield United at 16:07 BST the next day in the second semi-final.

The plan applies to all Premier League, Football League and Conference games, the Football Association said.

There will also be a minute's silence before all matches on those dates, held six minutes after the originally scheduled kick-off time.

On 15 April 1989, at the start of an FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, a crush on the terraces of Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough stadium resulted in the death of 96 Liverpool fans and left hundreds more injured.

That match ended at 15:06 BST.
