26 April 2016 - Hillsborough jury to deliver verdicts on 96 deaths
David Conn (The Guardian, 26/04/2016)
The jury at the new inquests into the Hillsborough disaster is to deliver its verdict on Tuesday on how 96 people died at an FA Cup semi-final on 15 April 1989.
The jury of six women and three men will give their decisions from 11am, on what is expected to be a highly charged day for relatives of the 96, many of whom will be at court for the conclusion of the longest jury proceedings in British legal history.
The coroner, Sir John Goldring, told the jury on Monday that he would accept a majority decision of 8-1 or 7-2 on the one remaining question they had not agreed on: whether the 96 people who died were unlawfully killed by gross negligence manslaughter.

A specially constructed court in Warrington has been hearing evidence into the 96 deaths for the past two years.
But at the same time two teams of investigators have also looking into the disaster and its aftermath, reports the Liverpool Echo .
Editorial (The Independent, 26/04/2016)
There was a calm before the storm on Monday at the anonymous courtroom building where, quietly and without ceremony, the inquests into the 96 victims of football’s Hillsborough disaster have been taking place these past two years. Barriers were being erected to create compounds for the vast ranks of media who will gather there on Tuesday. Courtroom passes were hurriedly organised for the families of the 96 who will make the pilgrimage.
At 11am, we will know what decisions have been reached by a majority of seven of nine jurors in the case. ‘Decisions’ because, although there is always a natural desire for a ‘guilty’ or ‘not guilty’ when questions of blame are considered, this inquest process is not binary. It is more complex than that.
