One of the worst recorded football disasters happened on 15 April 1989. During the 1989 FA Cup semi-final game between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest. 96 people died and hundreds were injured.

It took 26 years before an inquest jury concluded that the 96 Liverpool supporters who died were unlawfully killed. The jury decided that the supporters’ behaviour didn’t cause or contribute to the tragedy. They also concluded that various organisations, including the police, caused or contributed to the deaths.
