The summing up at the inquests into the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans at the 1989 Hillsborough disaster will begin on Monday.

Lord Justice Goldring is expected to take up to three weeks to sum up the 260 days of evidence in Warrington, Cheshire.

The inquests will then adjourn for the half-term break in mid-February and are due to reconvene on February 22 when the jury is expected to be sent out to consider their conclusions.

The tragedy unfolded on April 15, 1989, during Liverpool's FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest as thousands of fans were crushed on Sheffield Wednesday's Leppings Lane terrace.

During the inquests, which began on March 31, 2014, the jury has heard about stadium safety, match planning, the events of the day, the emergency response and evidence gathering by police, along with accounts of the final moments of each victim.
