The Hillsborough disaster left 96 men, women, and children dead, hundreds injured, and thousands traumatized. This account details the tragic day and the subsequent seven-week-long trial. It reveals the contradictions between the Taylor Inquiry, which found the main reason for the disaster to be falure of police control, the South Yorkshire police acceptance of liability in negligence, and the controversial inquest system which returned verdicts of accidental death when negligence had been clearly established. It also exposes the appalling treatment endured by the bereaved and survivors in the immediate aftermath, the inhumanity of the identification process, problems concerning the emergency response, and the systematic review and alteration of police statements by South Yorkshire police managers and their solicitors.
