    Football and Liverpool go hand in hand in a long and passionate history celebrated in the city's museum, but also commemorated at Anfield are the terrible events of April 15, 1989.

    That was the day 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death.

    The Hillsborough disaster is now part of the city of Liverpool's identity because of the pain the bereaved families share in.

    There is a perception that the whole truth behind the tragic events has still not come out and that those in authority have not been fair to the city, or its football fans.
