The British High Court receives an application to dissolve the verdict for the original Hillsborough-disaster inquest.
The Hillsborough disaster refers to the human crush that took place during a football match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in 1989, which led to the death of 96 Liverpool supporters. The original verdict, issued in 1991, claims the deaths were accidental.
However, following several other inquests and a petition demanding the government to release previously unpublished official documents, new medical evidence was found, which suggests the deaths were the result of inadequate responses from the police force and emergency services.
According to a report published by the Hillsborough Independent Panel, 41 of the 96 people who died had the "potential to survive". In addition, the investigation also found that 164 police statements had been altered to remove any negative comments regarding the policing of the match.
Attorney General Dominic Grieve is set to present the application of annulment to Chief Justice Lord Judge and two other judges in London.
