Minute’s silence for Hillsborough dead

Liverpool have confirmed they will hold a minute’s silence before Sunday’s game against West Ham as a mark of respect for the 96 people who died in the Hillsborough disaster.

The Anfield clash with the Hammers is the final home game before the 24th anniversary of the tragedy.

In September last year, an independent review concluded that no Liverpool fans were responsible in any way for the disaster, and a lack of police control was the main cause.

The annual memorial service will be held on Monday, 15 April at Anfield at 2:45pm.
