Inquests

The Coroner to the inquests, Sir John Goldring, asked Operation Resolve to provide him and the Solicitors to Inquests with assistance in preparing for, and conducting the inquests. Operation Resolve carried out a number of enquiries in relation to the following topics:

  • Stadium safety
  • Preparations for the 1989 semi final
  • Crowd management on 15 April 1989 and the fatal crush
  • Emergency response
  • The pathological causes of death in general
  • The experience of each individual deceased person

The information and material gathered was supplied to HM Coroner Sir John Goldring for his consideration of use for the inquest process.

On Tuesday 26 April 2016 the inquest jury delivered their determinations. You can read them in full via the Hillsborough Inquests website.
