Even the Taylor Report did not blame ticketless fans.
The Health & Safety Executive studied the CCTV footage after the disaster to ascertain how many supporters had entered the Leppings Lane end of the
ground. The capacity of the whole Leppings Lane end was 10,100.
The Executive gave estimates of the number of fans who had entered that day based on CCTV evidence. 1st was 9,267 fans were inside; a 2nd ‘best
estimate’ was that 9,734 were inside and the maximum number given was 10,124. The problem wasn’t that there were too many fans, it was simply that
too many fans were directed in to the two central two pens where overcrowding occurred.
There is however no proof that fans caused the tragedy in the Taylor Report or the recent inquest.
The fact remains that this was an almighty cover-up by the media and the South Yorkshire Police and the Establishment. Successive Tory and Labour
governments allowed the real truth to be buried.
What is important about Hillsborough is that 96 lives were lost and the very people we are supposed to place most trust in within British society
failed and lied to the nation or were complicit in covering it up.
