Fresh Hillsborough inquest date to be decided

A hearing to decide the date and location of a fresh inquest into the deaths of the 96 Hillsborough victims has begun in London, reports BBC News. A new inquest was ordered in December when High Court judges quashed the original accidental death verdicts.

The fans died in 1989 at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

The original inquest was held in Sheffield but families want the new hearing held elsewhere.

The hearing is also being shown on a live video link at Liverpool Crown Court.
