A fan sits on the Hillsborough terraces
The death of 96 Liverpool fans at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough touched many Merseyside families.
Within hours of the tragedy fans were gathering outside Anfield and when the club took the decision to open the gates the Kop end of the ground became a mass of floral tributes.
Liverpool suspended their fixtures and many of the players attended the numerous funerals that took place across the city.
When the FA Cup semi-final was played Liverpool beat Nottingham Forest at Old Trafford to set up an emotional encounter at Wembley with Everton.
