On the afternoon of Saturday 15 April 1989, 96 Liverpool fans were fatally injured at Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough ground.
They had gone to watch their team play Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup semi-finals, but became crushed against steel fences that surrounded the pitch.
Here - using BBC Radio archive and graphic images from that day - we pay tribute to the victims by recalling how events unfolded.
