The movement has gathered a great deal of support from former and current officials, in addition to being championed by Liverpool and Manchester mayors, Steve Rotherham and Andy Burnham.
Levelling up cannot only be about big spending announcements and shiny infrastructure projects.
It should also about righting long-term, structural injustices. There are few bigger than this. Levelling the scales of justice *is* levelling up.

It remains baffling (to say the absolute least) that the law can decide Liverpool supporters were unlawfully killed as a result of negligent actions yet still not find anyone accountable for the decisions made at the time.
Nonetheless, we’re glad to see the South Coast side show solidarity with the people, city and affected families of Liverpool in the ongoing search for answers and justice.
We can only hope this encourages other English top-flight outfits to stand shoulder to shoulder with the club in calling for a Hillsborough Law Now.
Justice for the 97.
