Mayor Joe Anderson will lead a private ceremony for the Hillsborough families at the Town Hall for the dedication of the clock.

The hands will be frozen at 3.06pm, the time that the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989 was stopped.

The commemorations will then proceed to Old Haymarket, where the memorial monument will be officially dedicated at a public ceremony at 2pm.
