The families of 96 people who died in the Hillsborough disaster will begin studying in detail the contents of a damning report into the actions of official bodies in the aftermath of the tragedy.

It is expected that the victims’ relatives, largely represented by the Hillsborough Families Support Group, will meet in the coming days to discuss how they take matters further. One of their first steps will be to start the process of overturning the inquest verdicts of accidental death, which is already being considered by the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve.

Support group president, Trevor Hicks, who lost two daughters at Hillsborough, also said they would now press for criminal action against those involved in the disaster, adding: “The truth is out today, justice starts tomorrow.”
