Hillsborough: The Truth – with Phil Scraton, Adrian Tempany and Paul Howard

24 September, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Phil Scraton and Adrian Tempany in conversation with Paul Howard

On 15th April 1989, 96 men, women and children who attended an FA Cup match in Sheffield never came home. Victims of criminal negligence and complacency, they died needlessly and what followed would compound the agony of their loved ones for decades. In April 2016, an inquest jury finally ruled that the victims were unlawfully killed. Hillsborough illustrated how the interests of ordinary people are marginalised when those in authority sacrifice truth and accountability to protect their reputations.

Phil Scraton is a criminologist, academic and author known particularly for his investigative workinto the Hillsborough disaster. He is Professor of Criminology in the School of Law at Queen’s University Belfast.

Adrian Tempany is a journalist, Hillsborough survivor and campaigner. He is the author of And the Sun Shines Now: How Hillsborough and the Premier League Changed Britain

Paul Howard is a former sportswriter best known for his fictional creation, Ross O’Carroll-Kelly. Paul is a lifelong Liverpool supporter
