Amazing documentary, part of the truly superb Explosive 80s series.

Anyone watching? I have been fairly anti all seater stadia but after this I have changed my mind

OMG! My ex dh lived there when it happened. He said it was so incredibly shocking when it happened. What a nightmare.

The ex said it was a delapidated. He'd been offered tickets, but his father was a high-ranking diplomat who was under an assisination threat at the time, so none of his family was allowed out on their own. Thankfully.

Not only was it dilapidated, there was only 1 doctor on duty at the stadium and the police inside the stadium were unable to summon help quickly from their colleagues outside because their walky-talkies weren't working properly. That doesn't excuse the behaviour of the hooligans though. What a terrible day.
