Hillsborough remembered 25 years on in Liverpool

Featured, Uncategorized 16 Apr 14

Featured above is Tiger Smith. A young LFC fan who was determined to visit Anfield on the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

I have visited Anfield a few times over the years to pay my respects and to document the event. This year I went to meet people and find out what it means to them. Most said they were there because they had to be. They had to pay their respects. Others because they had a personal connection. There is massive love, respect and support here for the families who lost people 25 years ago. They aren’t walking alone. The city, the country is behind them.

Thank you all for giving me 5 minutes of your time. YNWA.
