As always on this day of the year, please take a moment today to remember fellow supporters who went to watch a football match and never went home again.

RIP. Justice for the 96.

Looks like it'll be a majority verdict on the main question. Hence the delay

The fans behaviour didn't contribute to the disaster.

The only possible verdict and clearly the right one. Hopefully we will see prosecutions follow.

In future, the next time an idiot tries to blame the victims it will be possible to remind them that a jury of ordinary people having heard all of the evidence in great detail found otherwise.

Wow. I've believed ever since I was old enough to read about it that it was unlawful killing, but to finally have it admitted by the authorities. I can't imagine how the families of those killed are feeling today.

After the crush in the West Terrace had begun to develop, was there any error or omission by the police which caused or contributed to the loss of lives in the disaster? Yes or no.

Yes.

Thank goodness the lies surrounding that dreadful day at Hillsborough are finally being nailed after all this time. I guess it's a case of better late than never, but that's no comfort to the 96 football supporters who lost their lives; or the relatives and friends who are no longer around to see justice being served. May they rest in peace.
