Liverpool chairman Tom Werner issues a statement to those who were affected by the Hillsborough tragedy.

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has issued a statement 'extending his thoughts' to those who were affected by the Hillsborough tragedy.

The Hillsborough report found that the safety of the supporters was compromised, and that police and ambulance service statements were doctored in an attempt to blame Liverpool supporters for the disaster.

The statement read: "On behalf of myself, John and everyone at the club, I would like to extend our thoughts and prayers on this hugely significant and deeply emotional day to everyone affected by the Hillsborough disaster. Today the world has heard the real truth about what happened at Hillsborough.

"As a football club, we will continue to remember those who died and support the families who lost loved ones on that terrible day. We hope that today's findings will give some comfort to the families and survivors and go some way to addressing some of the key questions that have hung over the Hillsborough tragedy for the last 23 years."

The committee also revealed that 41 people could have been saved during the disaster 23 years ago.
