Family's fight for justice after Ramsbottom man's death in Hillsborough disaster

Lancashire Telegraph: Barry Glover, who died at Hillsborough Barry Glover, who died at Hillsborough

THE FAMILY of a Ramsbottom man who died in the Hillsborough stadium disaster are seeking justice at new inquests due to start at the end of the month.

Barry Glover was one of 96 Liverpool supporters who died as a result of the tragedy on April 15, 1989, after a crush during an FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest at the Sheffield Wednesday stadium.

Bury-based solicitors’ firm Butcher and Barlow LLP, which is representing the family at the inquests, said this was the biggest case they had ever taken on.

Mr Glover, a greengrocer who worked at his father’s family business in Bolton Road West, Ramsbottom, was 27 when he died.

He travelled to the match with his father, George, and a group of friends, and stood in the Leppings Lane End where the crush occurred.

The original inquests in 1991 recorded verdicts of accidental death, but the High Court quashed these in 2012 after the Hillsborough Independent Panel was critical of the way South Yorkshire police handled the event.

Pete Weatherby QC is heading a team of five barristers who have been instructed on behalf of 22 families, including Mr Glover’s.

Anthony Higham, the managing partner and head of litigation at Butcher and Barlow, said: “The team is working flat out to ensure we achieve our client’s goal, which is to get to the bottom of exactly what happened on the April 15, 1989.

“We owe it to Barry and his family to do whatever we possibly can to help reach a just and fair conclusion to what has been a painful and traumatic 25 years for the families involved.”

“We are having to assess an enormous volume of evidence on a continuing basis and attention to detail is crucial.

“There is still a lot of work to be done, not only before March 31, but also throughout the inquest itself, which could last until at least the end of the year.”

Hillsborough survivor Christopher Whittle, from Burnley, is also preparing to give evidence during the new inquests, which will take place in Warrington from March 31.

My Aunty Chrissie died at Hillsborough. Like you, I'm praying that this inquest will finally bring us some kind of peace. Justice is long over due and as time has passed we have relatives that will never see justice done which breaks my heart. Hillsborough has cost us so much. On April the 15th, I will be at Anfield remembering the 96 angels. One day, justice will come. Until then, we can only make people realise the truth. Y.N.W.A. JFT96 X

Yet if you were there, or had lost a loved one, you'd never want it to be forgotten - and nor should it be.

You will never grieve while your fighting this and what for it will never bring them back all compensation will bring is guilt that you have sold their soul. I remember them days the majority of fans will have had ten plus pints so the blame should be on all the fans that were tanked up not the police you can say what you want but the truth hurts and why has this not been sorted and ended. Any bloke of that era that went to football will say the same. And throw in football violence is it no wonder it was a disaster waiting to happen. With Heysel Stadium disaster still at the time fresh in everyone's mind what do you expect? Its just about money!! nowt to do with justice.

You're pathetic. people are supposed to stand by and accept gross injustice like this are they? If you're 'sick of it', don't read it.

Had your wish been granted, the cost to the taxpayer would have been many, many times higher in the long run once the entire police structure in this country would have to be deconstructed and built up again using a different model.

I think this is just a painful reminder that you chose to believe in the lies at the time and they've now been shown up for what they were. As Mark Twain famously said, 'It is easier to fool someone than to convince them they've been fooled.'

Every few months there is some other relative or family bringing it up, how can we avoid it. Heysel was only one disaster. Ibrox twice and Burden Park springs to mind.

You've just displayed more than.adequately how thick you are.

An independent inquiry has already found that evidence had been tempered with, hundreds of Police statements altered to deflect the blame for the cause of this disaster. These were criminal acts committed more than likely by senior Police officers from South Yorkshire Police and although it was 25 years ago, if there is a chance to bring about a prosecution or prosecutions, then it must be done.

Try telling the families if the 96 dead that it's nothing to do with justice you utter waste of skin.

You are quite the bellend aren't you? It's pointless trying to highlight your shortfalls because you are beyond repair you pathetic oxygen thief.

Why not get your history books out (presuming you can read) and see what other disaster victims you can sl@g off?
