Hillsborough Inquests

As a result of the events at Hillsborough on 15 April 1989, 96 men, women and children lost their lives. Following an application by the Attorney-General, in December 2012 the High Court quashed the verdicts in the original inquests and ordered fresh inquests to be held.

The Rt Hon Sir John Goldring has been appointed as Assistant Coroner for South Yorkshire (East) and West Yorkshire (West) to conduct those inquests.  The inquests hearings started on Monday 31 March 2014 at 305 Bridgewater Place, Birchwood Park, Warrington, Cheshire WA3 6XF. 

The purpose of this website is to provide information relating to the inquests, including transcripts of the proceedings and evidence that is produced during the hearings.
