Reds ponder Hillsborough memorial
Liverpool's new stadium
Premier League side Liverpool plan to have a new home in 2010
Liverpool may leave 96 empty seats in their new stadium as a memorial to the fans who died at Hillsborough in 1989, reports BBC Radio Merseyside.

Ninety-six Reds fans died after being crushed on the terraces during an FA Cup semi-final with Nottingham Forest at Sheffield Wednesday's ground.

In July Liverpool revealed their plans for a new 60,000 all-seater stadium, which is set to open in 2010.

One idea for the ground is to leave seats empty to form the shape of 96.

606: DEBATE
A flame and memorial listing the names of the dead already stands on Anfield Road and the club plans to move it to the new stadium in Stanley Park.

An inquiry into the Hillsborough disaster led to all-seater stadia being introduced into top-flight football.
