On this day: 96 fans lose their lives at Hillsborough

Back on this day in 1989, a crush at Hillsborough kills 96 supporters prior to an FA Cup semi-final tie between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

Twenty-five years ago today, 96 football supporters went to an FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, but never returned home.

Much has and will be written over the next few hours about the tragic events at Hillsborough. However, rather than produce an article that doesn't do today justice, Sports Mole has decided to let those with a close connection to Liverpool do the talking.

Below is a video, created by beIN Sports, which features the likes of Kevin Keegan, Roy Evans and Jason McAteer.
