It has been a monumental year for the Hillsborough families. The Hillsborough Independent Panel Report exposed the truth, this promoted apologises from all those who had lied or tried to cover up their guilt in the tragedy. After 23 years, the wheels of justice were finally set in motion last week, when the Hillsborough Inquiries were Quashed and new ones were ordered. And yesterday evening, the icing on the cake when The Justice Collective single “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” was declared the No. 1 Christmas single.
Unfortunately, none of these positive outcomes will bring the 96 back, however their families can find some comfort knowing that Justice is coming and there are millions who care. They have been an incredible inspiration and have kept fighting for 23 years, even when all the doors were slammed in their faces.
