Imagine your 15 year old son or daughter, niece or nephew got up on a glorious Saturday morning. They were excited because they were heading to a football match. A massive game between two of the biggest teams in the country at the time. Nothing appeared untoward of sinister initially, but they never came home. Read that again. They never came home. From a football match.
On 15th April 1989 Kevin Williams was one of the 96 to tragically die directly from injuries sustained at the Hillsborough disaster. However his death is different from the rest. At the time, the coroner amazingly put a 3.15pm cut-off point for ALL the people who died in the disaster. He stated everyone who died was clinically dead by that time. The difference with Kevin Williams is that there are statements from different people stating they spoke with Kevin up until at least 3.45pm. The coroner refused to change the time & a massive injustice is ongoing.
On Monday night, 17th Oct, a debate of huge significance took place in England. Over 130,000 people signed a petition to have Hillsborough debated, the case to be reopened, and the files from the time opened to the public for the first time. These files are so important as they contain the actual minutes of meetings between Maggie Thatcher, her government, the Sheffield Police and other ‘interested’ parties at the time. The whole investigation has been one cover up after another (Police chief at the time lied to the FA about the cause, FA lied to government who told lies to the s*n newspaper who lied to the country).in Williams is that there are statements from different people stating they spoke with Kevin up until at least 3.45pm. The coroner refused to change the time & a massive injustice is ongoing.
Following on from the debate on Monday, Kevin’s mother Anne Williams has started a petition to have the 3.15pm cut-off reversed and Kevin’s case reviewed. At 3.15pm Kevin was alive and needed medical attention from an ambulance. Ambulances were not allowed onto the pitch. If they had been, he’d have survived.
