The Hillsborough Disaster.

Jurors have reached a majority decision into whether the 96 victims of the Hillsborough Disaster were unlawfully killed.

The jury of six women and three men have been deliberating since the 6th of April after hearing two years of evidence.

The verdicts will be announced tomorrow at 11am.

I hope the families get the verdict they're hoping for, no-one should ever go to a football game and not return home.

I hope so Kat.

It's been going on since 1989, hopefully they can draw a line under the tragic events after tomorrow's verdict.

It's been 27 years. Why now?
The government should be a referee. It should never be a player on anyone's team.

There's been several inquests and inquires Madders, the first one was in 1991 and it returned a verdict of accidental death.

A new inquiry was started a few years ago after a long campaign by the families of the victims.

Some people said the fans were responsible for the Disaster and the Sun Newspaper told terrible lies about them.

They said they'd gone through the victims pockets as they were dying and urinated on the police.

It was terrible and the Sun is still hated in Liverpool to this day.

I wonder if the families, will sue the police?

An inquest ruled Rangers were at fault for the Ibrox Disaster and most of the families sued them.

I can't claim to know how those families feel, but my instinct is that if it were a relative of mine who died in those circumstances I would most certainly be looking for some form of justice.

So would i Lambert.

It's a shame Anne Williams who's son died in the Disaster and who was one of the leading campaigners, didn't live to see this day.

She was a remarkable woman.

I hope that policeman who told those lies and blamed the fans gets charged.

It was very moving watching the families singing, You'll Never Walk Alone today outside the inquest.

I feel so pleased they've finally got justice, but it's shameful it's taking so long.
