When justice fails

On 15 April 1989, a 15 year old me decided to take a break from exam revision and watch BBC Grandstand to keep an eye on the two FA Cup semi-final scores as they came in. Three years earlier, I had attended the first all-Merseyside final at Wembley, and was hoping for a repeat.

Had it not been for personal circumstances, I could very well have been at Hillsborough football stadium that day. I have counted my blessings ever since, yet that day, and the 32 years that followed, have left an indelible mark on my life, as it has on the lives of the people of Merseyside and many beyond.
