Explaining why he has chosen to hold the Hillsborough inquests in the North West,Lord Justice Goldring said:

It is plainly not a practicable solution for someone to commute from Liverpool or the North West on a daily basis.
I can not see how anyone with work or caring responsibilities can spend long periods away from home in a hotel in London.
Lord Justice Goldring said for those who are older or unwell, travelling to London would not be comfortable or easy.
