Episode details

The French government and police are blaming Liverpool fans for disorder at this season's European Cup Final, which held up kick off by 36 minutes. Football's European governing body UEFA also pointed an accusing finger at Reds' supporters, but hundreds of supporters testimonies tell a different story - one of official incompetence and poor communication which could have ended in tragedy.

Adrian Goldberg hears from Liverpool fan John Marquis who was at the match, and Professor Phil Scraton, Professor of Law at Queens University, Belfast, who led to the research for the Hillsborough Independent Panel.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
