    Hillsborough disaster

    Post by Steph on Thu Apr 15, 2010 4:05 am

    21 years on and we're still waiting for justice.

    For those who don't know what the hillsborough disaster is, to put it as simple as possible it the one single event that changed the face of football in this country forever....and still has no answers to what happen.

    Today is the 21st anniversary of the event....and one of the few times it doesn't matter who you support!

    The Hillsborough Disaster was a human crush that occurred on 15 April 1989 at Hillsborough, a football stadium, the home of Sheffield Wednesday F.C. in Sheffield, England, resulting in the deaths of 96 people, all fans of Liverpool F.C. It remains the deadliest stadium-related disaster in British history and one of the worst ever international football accidents. It was the second of two stadium-related disasters involving Liverpool supporters, the other being the Heysel Stadium Disaster in 1985.

    The match, an FA Cup semi-final tie between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, was abandoned seven minutes into the game.

    The inquiry into the disaster, the Taylor Report, named the cause as failure of police control, and resulted in the conversion of many football stadiums in the United Kingdom to all-seater and the removal of barriers at the front of stands

    I've heard about this a few times, really shockin events. Police need to keep there focus on the fanss more & keep safety measures to a quality standard, but even so it shouldnt happen at all.
