The Hillsborough inquests commenced on March 31, 2014 and are the subject of reporting restrictions that have been imposed by the Attorney General's office. Liverpool Football Club is respectful of these restrictions and will therefore only be making available updates from other media channels for the duration of the inquest.

The reports below - and the witness testimony contained within them - do not necessarily reflect the views of Liverpool FC. Please be aware that the reports on these pages will contain evidence about the day of the disaster which may be distressing.

April 26 - Hillsborough inquests: Jury returns unlawful killing conclusion

The jury at the Hillsborough inquests has returned a determination of unlawful killing in the deaths of 96 supporters as a result of the events at the disaster on April 15, 1989.

Six women and three men delivered their landmark conclusions on Tuesday afternoon following more than two years of proceedings at the court in Warrington.

A 7-2 majority answered 'yes' to the question 'Are you satisfied, so that you are sure, that those who died in the disaster were unlawfully killed?', prompting cheers from the families gathered at Birchwood Park.

There was further applause inside the court as the jury answered 'no' to the question 'Was there any behaviour on the part of the football supporters which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation at the Leppings Lane turnstiles?'

In answering 14 general questions laid out by the coroner, Sir John Goldring, the jury decided there was error or omission by police in planning and preparation for the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, and in policing on the day of the match, which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation.

The jury's determinations stated that the police's delay in calling a major incident, lack of communication, co-ordination and command and control, caused or contributed to the loss of lives in the disaster.

It was also found that there was error or omission by Sheffield Wednesday and its staff, Eastwood and Partners - the stadium's structural engineers - and the ambulance service (SYMAS).

The design and layout of the crush barriers at the Leppings Lane end did not fully comply with regulations, the ground's safety certificate had not been suitably amended and capacity figures were incorrectly calculated.

Following a short break, the jury also delivered its findings in the case of each individual, recording a time and cause of death for every victim of the tragedy, bringing an historic conclusion to the longest-running inquests in UK legal history

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.

At the beginning of proceedings in early 2014, the families were asked to write Pen Portraits in memory of lost loved ones, which they then read out in court.

Collectively, they've become known as The 96, but the Pen Portraits serve as a reminder that the victims of Hillsborough were more than a number.

Below you can learn about each individual who's still missed so much and who'll never be forgotten.

Hillsborough: A minute’s applause
Steven Scragg

The 29th anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster was marked not by the usual minute of silence before the closest home game to April 15, but instead by a minute of applause at Anfield prior to Saturday’s game against Bournemouth.

It was a strange experience in many ways.
Brought in from the continent, and often used in this country as a way of drowning out any heckling from opposing fans for polarizing figures or events, the minute of applause isn’t a universally embraced phenomenon in this country.

A conscious decision on behalf of the families of the 96 victims, however, it marked an invisible line in the sand of sorts. Instead of contemplating the painful loss of those who never made it home from the 1989 FA Cup semi-final, it was a gesture in celebration of their lives.

It was maybe a sign that there is a degree of peace to be found for those who lost their loved ones at Hillsborough. Or at least a first step in that direction. There will never be a cure for the pain, but a post-bereavement peace that most people eventually locate when they lose a loved one might be possible.
