Hillsborough: Your memories

This Wednesday marks the 20th anniversary of the day when 96 supporters lost their lives at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough. What are your memories of that day?

It was Britain's worst sporting disaster. The 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death because of overcrowding on the terraces. Some media coverage at the time wrongly blamed the Liverpool supporters for causing the disaster.

The subsequent inquiry ruled the official cause was a failure of police control. But so far nobody has been successfully prosecuted over the Hillsborough disaster.

There will also be a two-minute silence held in Liverpool, Nottingham and Sheffield at 1506 BST which will end when all civic, cathedral and church bells are rung 96 times.

Did you suffer the loss of a friend or relative on that day? Were you at the stadium?
