Some 90 police pocket notebooks that could provide vital information about the Hillsborough disaster have been recovered by investigators.
Claire and Amy McGlone have returned to Sheffield stadium for the first time since they lost their father Alan in the Hillsborough disaster.
The Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams has died. She had been diagnosed last year with terminal cancer.
Over 1,600 people have responded to the Independent Police Complaints Commission's appeal for witnesses in the Hillsborough stadium tragedy in 1989, with 250 people who have never given accounts before.
Home Secretary Theresa May made the announcement as she gave MPs an update on on the ongoing investigations into the tragedy which left 96 Liverpool fans dead.
- Over 1,600 people have responded to the IPCC's witness appeal which includes 250 people who have never given accounts before
- The organisation has recovered around 2,500 police pocket notebooks which had not been made available to previous investigations
- Around 400 witnesses have made requests to see their original statements
- The IPCC has also conducted further analysis of the 242 police accounts which are believed to have been amended
Ms May said if the investigation uncovers criminal behaviour, including manslaughter through neglect, the Government would seek to lay charges and put people and organisations before the courts.
Gerrard's 10-year-old cousin Jon Paul Gilhooley was among the 96 people who died in the 1989 disaster.
"I think it’s a nice gesture and also with the connection I’ve got to Hillsborough, with my own family, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I think the timing’s right and having spoken to the club I’ve decided to do it now," Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo.
The donation coincides with tonight's Merseyside derby and the 33-year-old said it was a gesture which acknowledged Everton's continued support for the campaign.
"Their show of support has been there since the tragedy happened. But alongside the gesture I am making, I and every other Liverpool fan can only thank the Evertonians for their support."
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has renewed its appeal for witnesses of the Hillsborough disaster on 15th April, 1989:
The IPCC's Hillsborough Witness Appeal is ongoing. If you have info contact us http://t.co/JuyGP4NZ9Z
The IPCC said: "We want to deliver the most comprehensive account of what happened at Hillsborough and its aftermath. To do that we need your help".
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it has identified 240 amended Hillsborough police accounts.
The IPCC's latest Hillsborough investigation update revealed 101 police officers have been interviewed so far and 10 more are arranged.
"Given that we have so far established that 22 of the officers are now deceased that leaves us with 218 officers to interview", it said in a statement.
"Contact with seven former officers has led us to taking the view that they are not fit for interview on health grounds, while nine other former officers have declined to be interviewed", the IPCC added.
The IPCC's renewed Hillsborough Witness Appeal has received more than 1,500 responses to date, the investigation's lead commissioner announced.
IPCC deputy chair Rachel Cerfontyne said, "From the responses to the appeal so far the major incident room has identified more that 750 matters for investigators to follow up on and speak to witnesses further".
"The witness appeal has also prompted more than 200 requests from witnesses to see their original accounts", she said, adding, "Work is ongoing to facilitate these requests".
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it has asked the family of a Hillsborough victim if they would like it to investigate recent allegations made against the UK's most senior officer, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.
The IPCC wrote on Twitter:
The families of the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster will be honoured for their long fight for justice tonight at the Pride of Britain awards.
The award will be collected by Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Families Support Group.
A barrister has told a pre-inquest hearing that handheld footage filmed by police at Hillsborough may have been edited.
Pete Weatherby QC, who is representing 21 victims' families, asked for an audiovisual expert to be among those to give evidence to the inquest to ensure that the best possible copies were shown to the jury.
The inquest into the Hillsborough disaster will be held in the same town as the IPCC and Operation Resolve is based.
The coroner, Lord Justice Goldring, has announced that they'll be held in Warrington, after hearing conflicting arguments at a preliminary hearing earlier this year.
The exact location has yet to be decided, but the inquest is scheduled to start by March 31 next year.
A family member of one of the Hillsborough victims has reacted to the announcement of the inquest's location.
Not sure how the other families feel but it feels MORE REAL now, with the #HILLSBOROUGH inquest location being announced. JFT96
