Everton show solidarity with neighbours Liverpool over Hillsborough memorial

eNewsletter
Liverpool's near neighbours, Everton are planning to have a permanent Hillsborough memorial at their stadium to remember the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the tragedy.

Talks have been held for a number of months with an Everton fan whose brother died during the 15 April 1989 disaster, a club spokesman said. The club said they had a "commitment" to unveil the Goodison Park memorial for the 25th anniversary next month

Everton's Head of media, Mark Rowan, said: "Evertonians and the club have always stood shoulder to shoulder with the families of the Hillsborough victims during their long fight for justice and we feel it is fitting that our home should have a permanent tribute to the 96."

It is not uncommon on Merseyside for Evertonians and Reds fans to live in the same family and Everton's move will come as no surprise to most on Merseyside.

Meanwhile, fresh inquests into the deaths will begin in Warrington on Monday.Original accidental death inquest verdicts were quashed in 2012 following an independent report.
