On April 15, 1989, 96 Liverpool fans died in at the Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield, crushed to death in an overcrowded stadium. Hundreds were injured and thousands more traumatised in a tragedy that captured international attention. In the aftermath, the local police covered up their failures in crowd management and the media sought to blame the fans. For 25 years, the victims’ families and the survivors waited for the truth to be revealed. A two-year-long inquest into the disaster brought in a verdict in April 2016. Will justice finally be served?
