Following a request made by Attorney General Dominic Grieve at a crowded courtroom in London, High Court judges annulled the inquest verdicts delivered in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy and called for fresh inquests to be held.
The fatal crush was caused by huge overcrowding in a terrace at Hillsborough Stadium in the city of Sheffield prior to an FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest 23 years ago.
Prior to the events at the High Court, British Home Secretary Theresa May announced that a new police probe into the disaster would be opened.
