8. LIFE AND DEATH.
On April the 15th 1989, the FA Cup semi final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest was played at the Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield. Liverpool supporters were driven into the ground at the Leppings Lane end and a crush developed. 96 supporters lost their lives and a further 766 were injured. This poem is dedicated to all those who lost loved ones on that day in the worst stadium disaster in British history, to the dead themselves and to those who were injured in that horrific event.
