A police sergeant has denied giving an instruction to open an exit gate, allowing thousands of Liverpool fans into Hillsborough.
John Morgan, who was in the vicinity of gate C seconds before it was opened, said he did ask officers nearby about opening the gate to allow through a small number of spectators who had been rescued from the crush outside the turnstiles.
The inquests have previously heard that Superintendent Roger Marshall decided the exit gates should be opened to alleviate a crush at the turnstiles and radioed the control room asking for permission.
The jury heard today that officers from Operation Resolve are investigating speech on a tape which appears to have recorded the order "Open the gates at Leppings Lane" at about 2.51 or 2.52pm.
Lawyers representing some of the bereaved families suggested it would have been about 90 seconds before the opening and Mr Morgan agreed it would fit with the order coming from the control box.

Sanah Shaikh, 24 from Old Trafford was the first person of Asian descent in the North West to be diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and working with ITV Fixers is determined now to dispel some of the mystery surrounding the condition.
SCD is a genetic blood disorder - most commonly found in people of African descent - in which oxygen-carrying red blood cells develop abnormally and then clog blood vessels causing often severe pain.
Sanah says, "Sickle Cell Disease can have a huge impact on your life. I have been in and out of hospital for much of mine and suffered unbearable pain at times - but because it's not something you can see - people are less understanding towards sufferers."
Sanah was diagnosed when she was three, "There were times in hospital when I was a teenage when I became very depressed and isolated because of having SCD. So I think raising awareness is massively important because it will help others sufferers be better understood by their peers and others."
