On the 27th Anniversary of Hillsborough

On the 15th April 1989, 96 football fans died watching Liverpool’s FA Cup semi-final. They died watching the team they adored, and the 15th April will always be a dark day in British history. That tragedy occurred in what should have been such happy circumstances still has an emotional impact across the globe. The solidarity shown across the world of football and beyond is a testament to that impact.

No words or statements can ever overcome the loss that the families of the 96 have had to endure, but their courage and strength in fighting adversity and seeking justice is a shining example to the country and to the world.

All our thoughts are with all those who were affected and who remain affected by the tragedy.
