The 1989 Hillsborough disaster claimed the lives of 96 innocent Liverpool FC fans. Since that day their families, and those who survived the terrible tragedy, have campaigned relentlessly for justice. September 12, 2012, was a momentous day as the findings of the Hillsborough Independent Panel finally confirmed the shocking truth and the full scale of the subsequent cover-up. It prompted the biggest-ever investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission into the huge police failings and saw the discredited "accidental" death verdicts quashed paving the way fresh inquests. The campaign for justice continues.
