I was watching TV, I think it was Grandstand, and news came in of crowd trouble at Hillsborough, where Liverpool were taking on Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup semi final. I was still living at home, and was with my sister and brother at the time.
What I saw as I watched horrified me. I saw the tragedy unfolding. I saw the opposing fans cheering, thinking that Liverpool fans were causing crowd trouble. I then saw those same fans realise that it was far more than that.
The faces of the people on the pitch told you all you need to know. 95 people died on the day, and 1 more died later making it 96 deaths. Those that dies were crushed to death.
And all these years later we still haven't got the truth about how this was allowed to happen. One thing that did change straight away is that the anti hooligan fencing was removed and seating is in at all stadiums in the top leagues.
Hopefully today we will hear and see the truth. Hopefully those families and supporters will get the truth.
