Archbishop of Liverpool pays tribute to Hillsborough families’ ‘relentless quest for justice’

Inquest rules 96 football supporters were unlawfully killed at Hillsborough in 1989

Archbishop Malcolm McMahon of Liverpool has paid tribute to the families of the people killed in the Hillsborough disaster after inquests concluded they were unlawfully killed.

Ninety-six Liverpool supporters died in a crush at Hillsborough stadium during match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in 1989.

“Since the awful events that unfolded at Hillsborough on April 15 1989, the families of the deceased and all who survived that appalling tragedy have been relentless in their quest for justice,” Archbishop McMahon said.

“I would like to thank the coroner and the jurors for their careful consideration of the evidence and all whose work has led to the conclusion of the inquest into the death of the 96. I hope that the acknowledgment that those who died were unlawfully killed will bring comfort to the survivors and the families of the 96.”

He added: “May they rest in peace, to be forever remembered in the hearts and minds of the people of Liverpool.”

The jury found police mistakes created dangerous conditions for fans at the Leppings Lane end of the ground, where the disaster took place, and that supporters did not contribute to that situation unfolding.
