Callum Watkinson reports on the reaction from families of victims from our region following the news that six have now been charged over their loved ones deaths.

Louise Brookes who's brother Andrew died in the crush told ITV News she was sad that this had come so long after the disaster:

Ex-chief superintendent David Duckenfield, who was in charge on that day in 1989, has been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence.

This relates to 95 of the men, women and children who died during the April 15 1989 FA Cup final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in Sheffield.He could not be charged over the death of 96th victim Tony Bland because he died almost four years later.

The law as it applied then meant no-one could be guilty of murder if the death occurred more than a year and a day later than the date when the injuries were caused.
