Nearly 25,000 Pay Tribute To Hillsborough Victims At Anfield With Bells, Lights, Scarves

SOMBER MOOD: In London, Jeremy Wilson reported the mood across all of Liverpool on Tuesday "stretched beyond sombre reflection to immense pride at a city that, perhaps more than any other in England, is so identified by its football teams." The scarves of clubs from all over Europe "were hung, three or four deep, on the Shankly Gates at Anfield" next to the Hillsborough Memorial on which the names of all 96 who died at the 1989 FA Cup semifinal against Nottingham Forest are inscribed. Beneath and adjacent to the memorial "was layer upon layer of flowers and messages" (TELEGRAPH, 4/15). In Manchester, Lee Swettenham reported ManU "posted special artwork showing their support for the club and those affected by the tragedy" (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS, 4/15).
