The ninety-six football fans who died as a result of the crushing at the Leppings Lane end of the Hillsborough stadium were unlawfully killed, the inquests have finally concluded. Furthermore. Police failures led to the deaths in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster; jurors answered yes to the question about whether any police error caused or contributed to a dangerous situation at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final. However, the behaviour of Liverpool fans did not contribute to the dangerous situation at the turnstiles. When the conclusion of the unlawful killing was revealed, families were seen hugging each other in the public gallery and some punched the air and cries of “Justice” and “Hallelujah”.
