Reaction to Unlawful Killing Verdict at Hillsborough Inquest – Sinead Cartwright

As a Lawyer who acted for several families who were victims of Hillsborough, I am fully aware of the pain and hurt those families had to go through in hearing allegations that it was the behaviour of the fans that caused this catastrophic incident.

This understandably led to the anger and need to seek the truth which has fuelled this long campaign for justice. It is therefore wonderful to hear that that campaign has finally led to what can only be the right verdict, that the authorities are guilty of ‘unlawful’ killing. Although it will not bring back those who were lost, at least their fight was not in vain.
