'This is not the end... there should be prosecutions'

The mother of one of the Welsh victims of the Hillsborough disaster says she believes there should be prosecutions for what happened that day.

Joan Hope from Holywell lost her 18-year-old son John when 96 football fans died in a human crush at the stadium.

A report released today found the safety of the crowds at Hillsborough had been 'compromised at every level'.

It also emerged that senior South Yorkshire Police officers had sought to change records and blame Liverpool fans in the aftermath of the tragedy.

Joan Hope added that she would like to see the inquests reopened and the verdict of accidental death quashed.

"I think the verdict should be unlawful killing," she said. "It was a criminal act that was committed."
