Hillsborough, Truth at last!
Hi everyone, as many of you will have heard or seen, Prime Minister David Cameron has apologised for the failings that took place on April 15th 1989, the failings that cost the lives of 96 innocent football fans and injured a further 766, 300 of which needed hospital treatment. I’ll be looking at the why it happened, the cover up that followed and also will be looking at the changes that have been made since the disaster to stop a tragedy like this ever happening again.
In the early 80’s 33 Tottenham fans were injured on the leppings lane terrace due to overcrowding, The FA took the FA Cup semi final away from Hillsborough for the following 6 seasons. Whilst some “improvements” were made nothing could prepare anyone for the incompetence of the police chief on the day.
