Solicitors representing relatives of 19 victims of the Hillsborough disaster have said original television footage of the tragedy has been lost.
Lawyers acting on behalf of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign said they were told by the BBC the original video from 1989 is "no longer in existence".
The BBC disputes the claims.
"The footage absolutely still exists and has not been lost. The BBC still holds copies of the original Hillsborough footage, but in an upgraded format. The footage was originally recorded on 1" reel and as that format was becoming obsolete, the BBC transferred the footage to digibeta."

"The BBC has already disclosed to both the Coroner and Operation Resolve, which is staffed by Greater Manchester Police, the BBC's untransmitted footage filmed at the stadium on the day.
Our records indicate that this footage was all disclosed to West Midlands Police on behalf of the Taylor Inquiry in 1989, to the Home Office who requested it on behalf of Lord Justice Stuart-Smith's Hillsborough Scrutiny in 1997 and that on a number of occasions it was also disclosed to the relatives/representatives of victims where it had been requested."

We have always been concerned about the integrity of the evidence, given that it emerged very early on that police statements had been altered. We are now learning that the statements from other organisations have also been altered. We knew that original footage from Sheffield Wednesday Football Club had gone missing and now, to add to all these problems, we learn that the original BBC footage is no longer in existence. We would ask anyone who may have in their possession original BBC, police or other footage or photographs of the day to contact us.
A football competition for Liverpool schools to mark the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough is being launched.

The first matches will be played later this month, with the finals being held in Spring 2014 at Liverpool Soccer Centre in Walton, a few weeks prior to the 25th anniversary service to be held at Anfield.
Mayor Anderson said: “Every person who died at Hillsborough in 1989 was a football fan and the Hillsborough Cup and Plate is a fitting and appropriate way to remember them as we approach the 25th anniversary of the tragedy.
“It is really important that we do all we can to educate current and future generations about the tragedy so that we never, ever forget it.”
The initiative is also being backed by the Hillsborough families and Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs.
