Welcome to Operation Resolve

Operation Resolve is the criminal investigation into the Hillsborough disaster.

On 15 April 1989, Liverpool played Nottingham Forest in a FA Cup Semi Final at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield. As a result of events at the Leppings Lane end of the ground, 96 Liverpool fans died and hundreds more were injured.

Following the publication of a report in 2012 by the Hillsborough Independent Panel, the Home Secretary Theresa May, ordered a new criminal inquiry and Operation Resolve was formed.
