The final report of the Hillsborough Independent Panel will be published today. The report will provide guidance on over 400,000 pages of previously unpublished documents from dozens of organisations relating to the disaster which left 96 Liverpool supporters dead following a crush on the terrace during the 1989 FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield.
The report published in 1990 by Lord Justice Taylor found that the main reason for the disaster was a failure of police control. In spite of this nobody has ever been prosecuted or held to account in any way from the disaster.
The London Independent provides a good summary of the key areas which it is hoped will become clearer with the release of these documents.

The families of the victims and those who endured the events of that day have suffered a great deal in the 23 years since the disaster. Whatever comes from today the main hope is that it can bring these people some closure and peace.
