New Hillsborough Inquest

01 Jan 2018

Inquests and Inquiries

The High Court has quashed the original inquest verdicts returned on 96 Liverpool football fans who died as a result of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster and ordered new inquests after Attorney General Dominic Grieve’s application. Philip Kolvin QC has recently been appointed to represent Sheffield City Council, the body responsible for issuing the safety certificate for the football ground at the major new inquest, which is due to take place later this year or early next.
