An Inspirational Story
on 11 November 2013
I consider myself well-educated on Hillsborough, which means I knew a lot of what was written in this book before I read it. What amazes me about this most avoidable of disasters and most despicable of cover-ups is that you never know it all. The lengths to which people went to keep the truth covered up, the obstacles that were put in the way of a normal working class Mum over such a long period of time would be enough to destroy anyone - but Anne kept her faith in what she knew. The facts of Kevin's case. It's remarkable to see the bonds she built with those who helped Kevin on the day - good people trying to do difficult jobs, good people harassed into changing statements and simply not called to give evidence because they told a different story than that the authorities had put out.
When the Hillsborough Independent Panel Report came out, it was described by many legal experts as the biggest cover-up in UK history. No-one did more to expose that than Anne Williams. She deserves to have that story told, brilliantly told by those who knew her best. She deserves that story to be read. She deserves for you to read it.
