Plea for Hillsborough justice
The Kop stand at Anfield was full of families, friends and well-wishers
The memorial service for the 96 victims of the Hillsborough stadium disaster has been used to make an impassioned plea for justice.
The chairman of the Hillsborough Family Support Group which represents the victims' families attacked the inquiry into the disaster in 1989.
Mr Hicks also denounced those who said it was time to move on.
In the famous Kop stand, the clock stood still at 3.06pm - the time the referee blew his whistle to stop the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest when it became clear that a major tragedy was unfolding in one of the stands at Hillsborough.
Players, past and present, including Robbie Fowler, Alan Hansen and Steve McManaman, joined team coach Gerard Houllier for the service conducted by the Bishop of Liverpool, the Right Reverend James Jones.
The names of the victims were read from the memorial book and floral tributes were laid at a plaque bearing their names.
The ceremony ended with an emotional rendition of the Liverpool anthem You'll Never Walk Alone.
Prime minister's message
The Prime Minister, Tony Blair, issued a message to those commemorating the disaster.
"It is right and proper to take time to reflect on the events of Hillsborough 10 years ago. We must never see a repeat of that day," he said.
Among those attending the memorial was the Sports Minister Tony Banks.
In a statement, Mr Banks said the memory of the football fans who lost their lives "must never be forgotten".
"It is no comfort to the families of the 96 fans who died at that football match to know that grounds today are much safer and more civilised places to visit. It is inappropriate to talk of good coming from the tragedy.
"But I do believe we have learned lessons and I know that there is a collective will to make sure this can never happen again," he said.
Football community's tribute
At last Sunday's FA Cup semi-finals there was one-minute's silence in honour of the dead. The gesture will be repeated during this weekend's fixtures.
Families of the victims and many survivors believe that true responsibility for the logistical failures has never been accepted.
The Hillsborough Family Support Group is now pursuing a private prosecution of the two most senior South Yorkshire police officers on duty at the ground.
