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."

I am deeply shocked and saddened by this news.

My heart goes out to the family of Neil Doyle. I am sure I speak for people across Merseyside when I send his loved ones, friends and colleagues our thoughts and most heartfelt sympathy

Bar doormen tried to help PC Doyle

The manager of the Aloha Bar told the Liverpool Echo that there were two groups of men who were walking down Colquitt Street together past his bar when a fight broke out.

There was a bit of an altercation with another group, not even an argument really, with no shouting or swearing.

Then they squared up to each other and a couple of punches were thrown.

Our doormen, although the group weren’t in the venue, did go out and assist in performing CPR until the police arrived.

I’ve not managed to speak to them yet, I believe they have been helping the police with interviews, but fair play to them. Two of them and went and helped. They did what they could.

It’s terrible, just unbelievable. I feel very sorry for his family.

– Aloha manager, Ryan McMahon
