Hillsborough disaster 15TH APRIL 1989

    The Hillsborough disaster was a deadly human crush that occurred on April 15, 1989, at Hillsborough, a football stadium in Sheffield, England resulting in the death of 96 people (all fans of Liverpool Football Club).

    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...…ter

    I dont recall this - would have only been 11 at the time.

    My thoughts go out to the families.


    Good post, I am sure that they are all still missed. I was only one at the time but it affected the family

    R.I.P all

    I remember this like it was yesterday, I watched it unfold on TV not realising at the time exactly what was going on.

    Everyone will be missed by their families, my thoughts are with all the families

    I too remember it like yesterday.

    It was a scorching hot day and I was at the Dumbarton v Brechin City match and heard reports, initailly of "crowd trouble but not fighting" coming in through the radio. We listened intently and then suddenly in the ten minutes between leaving the ground and arriving in the pub, the number of deaths rose dramatically.

    We won 1-0 nothing that day according to the record books but I can't remember any of our match at all.


    didnt realise it happened so close by to my home!

    how sad, RIP.

    I remember this vaguly I was only 10 so didn't pay that much attention to the news. What saddens me now is I look through that list and so many of the dead are so young I counted about 35 under 21 and one poor soul at 10 They never had a chance to live their lives.
    Please dont get me wrong all the deaths are a tradgedy but I never realised so many youngsters died before.

    I have seen that tribute a few times, so touching. I hope it will be moved to the new stadium.

    So many young lives lost that day
