This video says about itself:

15 April 2017

The Hillsborough disaster happened 28 years ago, 96 people were killed in the man-made catasrophe.

It has taken 28 years for the first charges to be laid against any of those culpable in the killing of 96 Liverpool football fans. They were crushed to death on April 15, 1989 at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough stadium, South Yorkshire: here.

RELATIVES of the 96 people killed in the Hillsborough football stadium disaster looked on in court yesterday as former chief constable Sir Norman Bettison faced criminal charges relating to the tragedy: here.

    THREE former police officers and two other men were in the dock yesterday charged with offences relating to the Hillsborough football stadium disaster, in which 96 Liverpool football fans died.

    The five appeared in Preston Crown Court, where judge Mr Justice William Davis ruled at a pre-trial hearing that their case can be heard in the same court.

    Former West Yorkshire and Merseyside chief constable Sir Norman Bettison appeared with fellow retired police officers Donald Denton and Alan Foster.

    Alongside them were former Sheffield Wednesday club secretary Graham Mackrell and solicitor Peter Metcalf, who acted for South Yorkshire Police following the 1989 disaster.

    A sixth man — former police officer David Duckenfield — has been charged but is subject to a separate procedure.

    No pleas were entered by the defendants but their lawyers indicated at an earlier hearing that they will plead not guilty.
