Yesterday’s incredible Memorial Service at Anfield, attended by 30,000 people, provided a fitting tribute to the 96 Liverpool supporters who lost their lives 20 years ago this week.
In addition to the thousands who travelled to Anfield to pay their respects, supporters around the country and the world did so in their own way.
Services were held in Sheffield and Nottingham and across Merseyside public transport and shopping centres came to a standstill for the 2 minutes silence at 3.06pm.
The service, which ran to almost two hours, was shown live and uninterrupted on BBC News, Sky News, Setanta Sports News and Sky Sports News in the UK, aswell as live on the club’s official website – where it is still available to watch for free online now.
ITV News presented their flagship 6pm and 10pm news programmes live from Anfield and today’s national newspapers give the Reds’ fight for Justice front page coverage. The Daily Mirror in particular lead with a striking front page – a complete contrast to one certain newspaper 20 years ago.
Our book of remembrance and forums have had tributes from fans across the country – Celtic, West Brom, Nottingham Forest, Man United, Everton, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Burnley, Hartlepool, Hull City, Hibernian and from supporters in Ireland, Holland, Slovakia, Palestine, Greece, America, South Africa and Australia.
