Saturday morning, April 15, 1989, and excited teenager Jim Magilton is on a coach to Sheffield with his team-mates from Liverpool's reserve squad.

Saturday night, April 15, 1989, the coach returning from Sheffield is silent as the travelling party tries to come to terms with the tragedy they had witnessed at Hillsborough.

Magilton was in the South Stand to watch the mighty Liverpool play Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup semi-final when the disaster unfolded 31 years ago on Wednesday.
