Hillsborough Justice Campaign lawyer Elkan Abrahamson paid tribute to Anne Williams, who passed away in the early hours.
'I was very sad to learn of Anne's death. I have known Anne for two decades. Her unremitting fight for the victims of Hillsborough has been an inspiration to us all. There is no doubt that without her commitment and tenacious investigation the families would not be where they are today - on the verge of justice after the truth has been uncovered.
She was a loving mother, not just to Kevin but also to Michael and Sara. We will continue to draw support and strength from her example.'
