A human crush that caused the deaths of 96 people and injured 766 others at a football match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield, England.
In English football, most stadiums had steel fencing between the spectators and the playing field in order to prevent friendly and hostile pitch invasions. The crush occurred in pens in the Leppings Lane stand, allocated to Liverpool fans.
The Hillsborough Independent Panel concluded in September 2012 that Liverpool fans were not responsible for the deaths, and that attempts had been made by the authorities to conceal what happened. The report revealed "multiple failures" by other emergency services and public bodies that contributed to the death toll.
This led to a new inquest which, on 26 April 2016, returned a verdict that the supporters were unlawfully killed due to deficiencies in policing and ambulance response on the day, as well as the stadium's design, and reiterated that supporters were not to blame for the deaths.
