Crowds mourn Hillsborough campaigner

Crowds have lined the streets of a Merseyside town to bid farewell to Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams.

Mrs Williams, one of the loudest voices throughout the campaign for justice following the 1989 football stadium disaster, is being remembered at a service in Formby.

She died aged 62 on April 18 after a battle with cancer.

Scores of people, many wearing Liverpool scarves, gathered in bright sunshine outside Our Lady of Compassion Church.

A hush fell over the street as the hearse bearing Mrs Williams' coffin pulled up.

It also contained a wreath of white flowers embellished with red roses that spelled out "Mum".

Bystanders watched as the coffin was carried into the church, followed by hundreds of mourners.
