Bid to fast-track new Hillsborough inquest

An e-petition has been started to lobby the Government to fast-track a new inquest for one of the Hillsborough victims.

Anne Williams, whose 15-year-old son Kevin died after the disaster, has been calling for a new hearing. Yesterday it was announced she has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Now campaigners say she deserves to get justice before she dies.

Anne has also tweeted asking for support, saying: "I would luv to have my inquest before I die."

Anne has always refused to accept the official accidental death verdict, saying she has proof Kevin was alive after the 3:15pm cut-off implemented by the coroner.
