Remembering Hillsborough 27 years on

  

The Hillsborough stadium disaster left 96 Liverpool fans dead and 766 injured. They were watching their team play Nottingham Forest in an FA Cup semi-final at Sheffield Wednesday’s ground on 15th April 1989. The victims’ families have fought ever since to find out exactly what happened. The 12th September 2012 was a momentous day as the findings of the Hillsborough Independent Panel were published. Three months later the accidental death verdicts were quashed at the High Court paving the way for fresh inquests, being held in Warrington since 2014. 

The jury is now deliberating over 14 key questions set out by the Coroner Sir John Goldring, in a 33 page questionnaire, including determining if the police match commander, on the day, David Duckenfield is responsible for the unlawful killing of the fans by gross negligence manslaughter. 

This year will be the last memorial service to be held at Anfield, the home of Liverpool FC. YNWA.

Pictures of today’s full moon and on its way to being eclipsed. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the shot of the total eclipse as was a bit tired, but was able to see it in all of its glory.
