    Hillsborough inquests started two years ago today





    05:00, 31 Mar 2016
    By Eleanor Barlow


    Evidence heard from 500 witnesses, including police officers, fans, family members, and medical staff.


    The Hillsborough inquests started exactly two years ago today.

    On March 31, 2014, a jury was selected for the inquests into the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans who died at the FA Cup semi-final on April 15, 1989.

    Seven women and four men were originally picked for the jury, but in February 2015 one man was discharged due to “wholly exceptional medical reasons”, leaving a panel of 10.

    After the coroner’s opening of the case the court in Birchwood Park, Warrington, heard personal portraits of all of the 96 victims.



    The moving statements, read by family members, were heard between April 3 and April 29, 2014.

    The court went on to hear evidence about stadium safety, planning and preparation for the match, the events of the day, the emergency response to the disaster and the evidence gathering that took place afterwards.





    Hillsborough inquests shown 32-minute video presentation of how disaster developed





    The jury then heard about the individual movements of each of the 96, as well as pathology evidence.

    The inquests have heard from more than 500 witnesses, including police officers, fans, family members, and medical staff.

    There were 267 days of evidence before coroner Sir John Goldring started his summing up on January 25.

    Sir John finished his 23rd day of summing up on Tuesday, but the court was cancelled yesterday.

    It is hoped the inquests will resume for him to continue his summing up at 10am today.

    Hillsborough inquests adjourned early on what was due to be the final day of summing up





    15:24, 5 Apr 2016
    By Eleanor Barlow


    Sir John Goldring had told the jury about the questionnaires they will have to answer when deliberating






    The Hillsborough inquests were called off this afternoon on what had been due to be the final day of the coroner’s summing up.

    Shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham and Walton MP Steve Rotheram were among families at the court in Birchwood Park, Warrington, to see coroner Sir John Goldring sum up the case for a 25th day.

    He had expected to conclude his summing up today before the jury retired to consider their decisions.

    But, the jury did not come back into court after the morning session.

    The court was adjourned due to an issue with one of the jurors and is expected to resume at 10am tomorrow (Wednesday).

    In the morning Sir John reminded the jury of the 14 questions asked on a general questionnaire to establish by what means and in what circumstances the victims of the 1989 tragedy died.

    The court heard one of the questions would ask the jury about the behaviour of Liverpool FC supporters at the FA Cup semi-final on April 15, 1989.

    Question seven reads: “Was there any behaviour on the part of the football supporters which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation at the Leppings Lane turnstiles?”

    Sir John said: “As I reminded you, it is a very controversial issue on which there was conflicting evidence.”

    He added: “Was it the case that those outside the turnstiles behaved in a normal and reasonable way and that the dangerous situation developed purely because of insufficient turnstiles and a failure of police organisation?

    “Or was it the case that some supporters behaved in an unruly or obstructive way and that made a significant contribution to the dangerous situation?

    “Of course, behaviour by supporters which was normal and reasonable, rather than unruly, obstructive or non-compliant, cannot have contributed significantly to the dangerous situation.”

    He told the seven women and three men on the jury they would need to weigh up evidence of fans, police officers, club staff, residents and others.

    He said: “The AV evidence may help you considerably in forming a view about the behaviour of the supporters.

    “As you know, the suggestion was made to many witnesses that it shows no unruly behaviour and no sign of heavy drinking, such as some police officers recounted.”

    He also told them to bear in mind evidence of stadium safety expert John Cutlack, who assessed that the numbers of people who entered the stadium was consistent with the number of tickets sold.

    The coroner said: “As I have told you repeatedly, nobody has suggested that there was any hooligan behaviour which contributed to this disaster.

    “And there is no coherent evidence of supporters conspiring to force entry to the ground.”

    He added: “There was no evidence from the AV material suggesting any misbehaviour by anyone who died, or indeed anyone who gave evidence.”

    The jury was also reminded of some of the medical evidence about the 96.

    Sir John said: “The medical experts who gave evidence said that the so-called 3.15pm cut-off which had been imposed in the original inquests was arbitrary and wrong.

    “That cut-off, you will remember, was based on an understanding that all of those who died were either dead or had suffered such severe brain injury by that time that it would inevitably prove to be fatal, whatever the nature of the response.

    “The experts who gave evidence to you said that was a wrong general approach.

    “It was based on a misunderstanding.

    “One of the topics which you will have to consider in connection (..) is whether some of those who died would or might have been saved if the emergency response had been delivered more quickly or had been better organised.”

    BACK IN COURT

    The coroner and jury are in court now.

    Sir John tells jurors to take their files with them when they retire.

    He says if they want to be reminded of any evidence they can send a note.

    He says: “I want to thank you for the care with which, as I could see, you have plainly listened to the summing up, and many of you very diligently have taken notes.”

    The coroner says counsel to the inquests Matthew Hill will go through how to use the laptop the jury.

    It will be used to see evidence which has been shown during the inquests.






    13:59

    Mr Hill demonstrates how to use the laptop.

    Video evidence for the jury is on the laptop.

    The laptop also includes plans of where the cameras were in the ground.






    14:01

    The coroner says: “What will now happen is this: the jury bailiffs will formally be sworn.”

    Four jury bailiffs will be sworn in shortly.

    Sir John says if the jury wants to see anything which they saw during the inquests they should send a note.

    He says: “Each afternoon at the end of the day you will come into court formally to be released.”

    He adds: “Please remember this - it is very important - you should only discuss the case when you are all together as a jury.”

    He says: “Please remember the warning which I have given you regularly throughout the case: don’t talk about it; don’t let anyone else talk to you about it; don’t say anything about it on any social networking site; don’t seek out anything about it on the internet or elsewhere.”






    14:02

    The jury bailiffs are sworn in.






    14:04

    THE JURY RETIRES

    The coroner says: “Members of the jury, thank you all very much indeed.

    “I am going to ask you now to retire, please.”

    The jury has now retired to consider their decisions.






    15:09

    Jury released for the day

    The jury has been called back into court and released for the day.

    They are asked to come back tomorrow to when they will continue deliberations.

    Sir John Goldring says: “I want, before you go, just to remind you of what I previously said, and emphasise how very important this is.

    “You are a random selection of members of the public of all backgrounds and ages.

    “You have to work together in the interests of justice.

    “We are conscious that you have devoted a very large part of your lives to these inquests.

    “We have, of course reached a very important stage of the inquests.

    “It is of the highest importance, and I emphasise it, the highest importance, that all of you work together in the interests of justice.

    “It means that you have to be able to discuss the evidence together in a civilised manner.

    “It requires you to work together as a team.

    “It requires you to make your decisions together.

    “It requires you to put to one side any personal issues which can sometimes arise.”






    15:10

    The jury has been sent home for the day and told to return at 10am tomorrow.

    Hillsborough inquests jury asks for clarification on question of unlawful killing





    15:48, 19 Apr 2016
    Updated 15:54, 19 Apr 2016
    By Eleanor Barlow


    The jury asked coroner Sir John Goldring to clarify a point about "gross negligence"









    The jury in the Hillsborough inquests has asked for clarification on the question of unlawful killing.

    The jury, made up of six women and three men, asked the question during its ninth day of deliberations today.

    Court resumed at 11.30am for coroner Sir John Goldring to answer the query about question six of the jury’s questionnaire - which asks whether the 96 victims of the disaster were unlawfully killed.

    The jurors had been told that to answer yes to the question they must be sure of four points - whether match commander David Duckenfield owed a duty of care to the 96; whether he breached that duty of care; whether that breach caused the death and whether that breach amounted to “gross negligence”.




    The jury asked: “In discussion of question 6, the jury would be grateful if the coroner could clarify point four a little further, especially in relation to the phrases ‘gross negligence and criminal’.”

    In answer to the question, Sir John said: “Did Mr Duckenfield’s breach of his duty of care, which by then you would have concluded caused the deaths, amount to gross negligence?

    “At this stage, you would need to ask yourselves whether you are sure that his breach of his duty of care to the supporters was so bad, having regard to the risk of death involved, as in your view to amount to a criminal act or omission.

    “Two elements you have to be sure about for this aspect of gross negligence manslaughter to be proved.

    “First, and I have already touched upon this, that Mr Duckenfield’s breach of his duty of care was so bad as to amount to a criminal act or omission; second, that a reasonably careful and competent match commander in Mr Duckenfield’s position would have foreseen a serious and obvious risk of death, not only injury or serious injury, to those in the central pens of the west terrace.

    “Whether the breach of duty was so bad as to amount to a criminal act or omission is one for your judgment.

    “It is for you to decide whether the breach was so serious that it should be classed as criminal.

    “In considering this, you have to take all the circumstances into account.”



    He told the jurors they could take into consideration Mr Duckenfield’s professional background and lack of experience commanding matches, his preparation for the FA Cup semi-final and his actions on the day.

    The jury then retired to continue deliberations.

    Hillsborough inquests jury has reached decisions in all but one topic





    17:59, 20 Apr 2016
    By Eleanor Barlow


    Jury will continue deliberations on Monday



    The jury in the Hillsborough inquests has reached decisions on all but one topic.

    The court, in Birchwood Park, Warrington, was today adjourned until Monday after the jury asked for some guidance as they continued deliberations for a 10th day.

    Court resumed just after 1.15pm when coroner Sir John Goldring responded to a note the jury had sent.


    Sir John asked the jury forewoman: “Do I correctly understand that you have reached decisions in respect both of the general and the individual questionnaires, the topic that you raise apart?”

    The forewoman replied: “Yes.”

    The topic which the jury raised was not mentioned in open court, while the jury was present.




    The jury, made up of six women and three men, mentioned receiving further guidance in the note and were asked by the coroner to clarify what guidance they needed.

    The jurors were sent out again and court resumed at about 2.45pm, following another note from the jury, when the coroner told them to adjourn for the day.

    The court will resume on Monday at 10.10am.

    The jury has been told to answer a general questionnaire of 14 questions as well as record a time and cause of death for each of the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the disaster on April 15, 1989.

    The jury of six women and three men had been deliberating since 6 April after hearing evidence for two years.
    The forewoman said at least seven of the nine jurors had reached agreement on the unlawful killing question in a 14-section questionnaire.
    The conclusions will be formally returned at 11:00 BST on Tuesday.
    The jury had already reached unanimous conclusions for 13 of the questions. Question six asked whether the 96 were unlawfully killed.
    Coroner Sir John Goldring said on Monday he would accept a majority decision at the hearing in Warrington, Cheshire.

    It is reported that they will give statement tomorrow . JFT96

    Hillsborough inquests verdict to be delivered on Tuesday





    12:29, 25 Apr 2016
    Updated 12:55, 25 Apr 2016
    By Eleanor Barlow


    Majority decision would be accepted on unlawful killing question






    The verdicts in the Hillsborough inquests will be delivered on Tuesday, April 26.

    The court reconvened in Warrington this afternoon to be told the jury had reached a verdict.

    Earlier coroner Sir John Goldring had told jury members he would accept a majority decision on the question of unlawful killing.

    Last Wednesday the court had been told that jurors were unable to reach a unanimous decision on that topic, after agreeing on all other decisions.

    Court then resumed at 12.20pm when coroner Sir John Goldring said at least seven of the jury had agreed in respect of the question of unlawful killing.

    The jurors retired to consider their verdict on Wednesday, April 6 after more than two years of evidence from parties including survivors, families, police and other officials.

    The jury have had to complete a general questionnaire of 14 questions and record times and causes of deaths for each of the 96.

    The fresh inquests were ordered in 2012 after the publication of the Hillsborough Independent Panel (HIP)'s report in to the 1989 tragedy, which claimed the lives of 96 Liverpool FC fans.

    Sir John told the jury they would return to court at 11am tomorrow to deliver their conclusions. The ECHO will be at the hearing and providing live updates and reaction on our website.

    Good Morning,




    http://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/anno...uests-verdicts

    The Hillsborough inquests' verdicts will be returned on Tuesday and two days of dedicated programming will be available to watch on LFCTV and LFCTV GO, with no subscription required for either service.

    More than two years after proceedings began at the court in Warrington, the six women and three men of the jury are set to answer 14 general questions in determining how 96 supporters died as a result of the disaster on April 15, 1989.

    The jury will also return its findings regarding the circumstances of each victim’s death, with individual questionnaires recording the cause and time.

    LFCTV will provide updates from Birchwood Park throughout this landmark day with news bulletins, reaction and live coverage of the families’ subsequent press conferences.

    Coverage will continue on Wednesday, interspersed with the moving ‘More Than a Number’, a five-part programme in which those who knew them best share their memories of the 96 through the reading of poignant ‘Pen Portraits’.

    All those with a Sky box or any Virgin Media subscription will be able to watch LFCTV for 48 hours from 6am BST on Tuesday.

    LFCTV is available on Sky channel 429 in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and on Virgin Media channel 544 in the United Kingdom only.
