Thirty years ago, the Hillsborough tragedy

video On April 15, 1989, 96 people died and 766 were injured in a crowd at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England.

Posted today at 19h46

It was thirty years ago, on April 15, 1989. During the English Cup semi-final, Nottingham vs. Liverpool, a big crowd movement occurs. Some try to climb the stadium grills, against which they are stuck, to find some air. Others climb to the upper gallery. The meeting is stopped six minutes after kick-off. Balance: 96 dead and 766 wounded.

The tragedy has marked the city of Liverpool and England as a whole. While supporters have long been considered responsible, an investigation eventually revealed evidence in 2012 that overwhelmed the police. South Yorkshire Police Commissioner David Duckenfield has claimed for years that he has not given orders for a grid, whose improvised opening is considered one of the main factors in the tragedy. He finally admitted to lying. On April 3, 2019, in the course of his trial for manslaughter by gross negligence, the jury failed to decide his fate.
