Hillsborough families group: Gerrard donation 'a nice gesture'

Steven Gerrard has donated £96,000 to the Hillsborough Family Support Group ahead of Tuesday's Merseyside derby.

The group, along with the Hillsborough Justice Campaign, has been leading the fight to discover what happened at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final which led to 96 Liverpool fans losing their lives.

The Liverpool captain's 10-year-old cousin, Jon-Paul Gilhooley, died at Hillsborough.

Margaret Aspinall from the Hillsborough Family Support Group described it as "a really nice gesture" that shows "the measure of him".
