A Wisbech Town FC scarf has joined thousands of others on the pitch at Anfield this afternoon (Tuesday) as the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy are remembered.

It is 25 years since 96 Liverpool fans died in Hillsborough during the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

At the memorial service being held this afternoon, 26,000 were expected to fill three sides of the Liverpool FC ground to remember those who lost their lives.

Scarves from Football League clubs up and down the country have been collected and laid out to form a ‘96’ on the pitch.

The whole of Liverpool stopped at 3.06pm, the moment the game was halted on April 15, 1989, and church bells across the city tolled 96 times.
