Sheffield will remember the 96 fans who died in the Hillsborough disaster today, exactly thirty years after the disaster.

Ninety-six Liverpool fans died in the crush at Hillsborough during an FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in 1989.

The service will be held at the memorial outside the stadium.

A moment of silence will be observed at 3.06pm, the moment the FA Cup semi-final was stopped.
