On the 29th anniversary, one fan's story: The lad at the end of our street Came home from Hillsborough at the age of 19. Went into his house and for the next 12 years never came out, like he never left the house in that time. Lived a life with his mum and never ventured outside again until one afternoon his mum came home from work and he wasn't there. She frantically knocked at houses including ours asking if anyone had seen him. It was hard to say, we wouldn't know what he ever looked like now, the last time he was seen he was a happy smiling young man with the rest of his life ahead of him. The days turned to weeks with no word until she was informed his body was found dead on the south coast of England after committing suicide off a cliff. Nobody knows why he chose then or that location but we all knew why, the demons locked inside. If his home became prison his own head became solitary confinement. Today we remember the 96, but we also need to remember the countless others who never recovered from that day. We remember the lad at the end of the street.

The anniversary comes 12 days after a jury at Preston crown court failed to reach a verdict on the prosecution of the match commander, Ch Supt David Duckenfield, who was accused of gross negligence manslaughter. The Crown Prosecution Service has said it will seek a retrial, which Duckenfield is expected to oppose, at a hearing scheduled for 24 June. The jury reached a majority verdict to convict Graham Mackrell, Sheffield Wednesday’s then secretary and safety officer, of failing to take reasonable care of Liverpool supporters’ safety, by allocating only seven turnstiles for 10,100 people with tickets to stand on the Leppings Lane terrace at Hillsborough. The offence, under the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act, is punishable by a fine. Mackrell, who sought in his defence to blame Liverpool supporters for the dangerous congestion that developed at the turnstiles, will be sentenced on 13 May.
