Information relating to the Hillsborough Stadium incident 15 April 1989

Date released: 12/9/2012

On 12 September 2012 the Hillsborough Independent Panel (HIP) published government and other agency documents relating to the Hillsborough disaster in 1989 on the Hilsborough Independant Panel website. In 2010 HSE made a commitment to release all of the information it holds that relates to Hillsborough. HSE and HSL's primary role was to provide technical support to Lord Justice Taylor's investigation following the disaster, so the majority of the information released is of a technical nature (e.g. work undertaken to test barriers at the stadium etc).

Date released: 11/8/2005
