Over 100,000 people have signed an e-petition urging MPs to consider ruling a new inquest into the death of Hillsborough victim, Kevin Williams.
Set up by his mum, Anne, the e-petition is looking to start proceedings in overturning an accidental death verdict placed on her son in the stadium disaster of 1989.
Original inquests declared that all victims of the disaster were dead by 3.15pm that day, but Anne maintains that Kevin was still alive at 4pm and did not die from traumatic asphyxia, as the court decided.
100,000 signatures are needed in the Government’s e-petitions scheme to have it considered for debate in Parliament.
Over 60,000 signatures were added to the petition in the final 48 hours it is available for. At the time of writing, and with four hours to go, the petition now has a total of 114, 462 signatures.
Anne Williams thanked fans this afternoon for their support. She said, “Thank you everyone, honestly, from the bottom of my heart for signing and supporting me,” she said.
“It’s been 23 years of living with lies and I cannot go away until I get justice for Kevin.”
