Hillsborough disasterThe Hillsborough Disaster occurred on April 15, 1989 on a football field in England, resulting in the loss of 96 lives.
The game started just like any other, but with only 6 minutes played, the referee called a halt to the game. An influx of supporters in the Leppings Lane end of the ground (the Liverpool supporters' end) was causing a crush. This crush ultimately took the lives of 96 people.
A permanent tribute to those who tragically lost their lives can be found alongside the Shankly Gates at Anfield. A further tribute was set up in 1999 at Hillsborough.
