A song in memory of Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams is to be released tomorrow, ahead of the landmark 25th anniversary of the disaster.

‘The Angel’, written and performed by 17-year-old Dominic Dunn, was recorded Liverpool’s world-famous Parr Street Studios just before Christmas.

It is hoped the single will emulate the success of the Justice Collective’s ‘He’s Not Heavy, He’s My Brother’, which was 2012’s Christmas Number One.

Dominic told the Liverpool Echo: “I was asked if I could write a song for Anne a week before the fundraiser in September.

“I wanted it to be a song that touched people and knew it would be hard to write in only a few days but I just got my head down and put my mind to it.

“Anne’s son Kevin was a similar age to me so I had that going through my mind. I read up about the fight for justice and all the work that Anne did, and then just wrote was in my heart."

The single goes on sale on itunes on Monday 17th March.
