‘Re-open Hillsborough inquest’ call

The mother of a victim of the Hillsborough disaster was launching a legal bid to have an inquest into the tragedy reopened.

Anne Williams, whose 15-year-old son Kevin was killed in the disaster, will present a dossier to the Attorney General’s office arguing for a new inquest.

Mrs Williams, of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign, disputes the original inquest ruling.

The inquest found that all those who died at the Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield on April 14 1989 were dead by 3.15pm after suffering "traumatic asphyxia".

But Mrs Williams claims her son was still alive at 4pm and was denied emergency medical attention.

Before the presentation of the dossier, a church service for Hillsborough victims will take place at St George’s Cathedral, Southwark, London,.

The service will be led by Bishop Tom Williams and is expected to attract hundreds of London-based supporters.
