Christmas Day truce painting by military artist

The Christmas Day truce during the First World War when troops from both sides met in no man's land to play football and exchange gifts on December the 25th, 1914 has been captured by a military artist. It's hoped the sale of the painting of men from the Cheshire Regiment will raise money for soldiers' charities.

Kenny Dalglish gives evidence at Hillsborough inquests

The focus was on the game. We were watching what we were doing during the game. Mr Dalglish noticed a few people behind the Liverpool goal just before the referee stopped the match.

Mr Dalglish says he had no understanding of the cause, extent or seriousness of the problem as he returned to dressing room

We were told there were fatalities… we knew it wasn’t people fighting or hooliganism. The place was just mayhem. Nobody really knows what’s going on. So there's stories coming from every angle.

– Kenny Dalglish

Mr Dalglish said his son was at the game and he was concerned about him - on the way home he said "there was 'hardly a word spoken' on the team bus on the way home."
