Liverpool fans at Hillsborough, trying to escape severe overcrowding

There were smiles, hugs, tears and a rousing rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone outside the Coroner's Court in Warrington.

Justice had finally been done for the 96 Liverpool supporters killed at Hillsborough in Sheffield on April 15, 1989.

And the families of those who perished that dreadful day could celebrate winning the fight of their lives.

It took them 27 years, yet they never gave up.

The pain of losing a son, daughter, mum, dad, brother or sister will always remain for the families and there will still be anger that justice took so long to be served, but they can also feel proud of their monumental efforts.

They have been working and waiting almost three decades for yesterday's verdict, delivered by the jury after an agonising inquest that lasted over two years, poring over all the horrific and heartbreaking details.

That afternoon in 1989, thousands of football fans travelled to Yorkshire to cheer on their favourite teams, Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, with a place in the FA Cup final at stake.

Tragically, 96 did not make it home.

Think about that for a second. Filled with excitement and enthusiasm they went to a sporting occasion, as the vast majority of us will have done at some time in our lives, and did not make it home.

Men and women. Boys and girls. It was the most harrowing, traumatic experience for the families and friends of those who died.
