    This year's Hillsborough Memorial Service at Anfield will be the last one, after the Hillsborough Family Support Group unanimously agreed to stop the annual service at the ground.

    Chair of the HFSG, Margaret Aspinall, said: “The 96 will never be forgotten. It is likely that the inquests will be concluded before the anniversary so this final memorial service will provide the families with some closure.

    “We would also like to extend our thanks to Liverpool Football Club for their continued support over the past 27 years and for hosting the service each year at Anfield.

    “We hope that the public and fans respect the decision of the HFSG and will continue to remember the 96 in their own perhaps more private way.”
