Remembering Heysel, 36 years on

Thirty-six year ago today 39 fans died at the Heysel Stadium in Belgium during the European Cup final between Liverpool and Juventus.

Crowd trouble in Block Z of the stadium led to many Juventus fans being crushed as the stadium wall collapsed. After the tragedy there were criticisms of the state of the stadium, the lack of segregation between the two sets of fans and the behaviour of supporters on the day.

May those who lost their lives on that day never be forgotten…
