Kenny Dalglish, who was the Liverpool manager that day at Hillsborough in 1989, has written in the Daily Mirror about yesterday's "very encouraging" developments in the victims' families fight for justice:
The events of yesterday means the dignified search for justice has been given a platform to build on.
The sad thing is that 41 of the victims could have been saved and for their families there was obviously great upset.
The Prime Minister spoke very well, and MPs Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram have done a fantastic job at getting the release of the papers brought forward, while great credit should also go to the panel when you consider how much information they had to work through.
The aims remain the same for the families and their search to see justice done goes on.
A start would be for the death certificates and the coroner’s report to be changed from accidental death to unlawful killing.
However, it was a very encouraging day and a big step towards eventual closure.
