Former police officer Keith Marsh said: "I was hopeful that the people who had been involved in Lee’s care had done enough for him to have a chance."

The teenager was carried to an ambulance at the other end of the pitch and was the first casualty from the disaster to be taken to the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield.

Dr Rachel Pettinger, a paediatrician who treated him when he first arrived, told the jury: "He was so young. We tried very hard."

The court heard Lee was on a life support machine for two days before he died.
