New inquests into UK's worst sporting tragedy

Fresh inquests held into the Hillsborough disaster, in which 96 Liverpool football fans were crushed to death.

    Fresh inquests are being held into the UK's worst sporting tragedy: 96 Liverpool football fans crushed to death at the Hillsborough ground in 1989.

    The original verdicts of accidental death were overturned by the High Court in December 2012, after new evidence emerged.

    Families hope the fresh inquests will give them some answers.
