Hillsborough: A personal account

Twenty years ago, 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives at a football match in Sheffield. Despite the fact I was on the same terrace as those who died, I was fortunate enough to come home unscathed.

Years later, in the summer of 2003 I was asked by Four Four Two to write about my experiences of the tragedy. It was probably the most personal bit of journalism I’ve done. Today, the magazine, with my permission, has put the article on its website to coincide with the anniversary of the tragedy. For those that are interested, the piece is here.
