THREE men from Ellesmere Port were among the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
A total of 96 Liverpool supporters died as a result of the crush in the Leppings Lane terraces on April 15, 1989, having travelled to Sheffield to see their heroes face Nottingham Forest in an FA Cup semi-final.
Christopher Edwards, 29, of Kings Road in Little Sutton, was a laboratory technician at British Steel in Shotton.
James Delaney, 19, of Horstone Crescent in Whitby, was a machinist at Vauxhall.
James Hennessy, 29, of Northern Rise in Great Sutton, was self-employed. He had travelled to the game on a coach with James Delaney.
Jim, as he was known, had attended Liverpool’s 1988 FA Cup semi-final which was also held at Hillsborough against the same opposition.
The inquiry into the tragedy, The Taylor Report, named the cause as ‘failure of police control’, although no one has ever been held accountable for what was the worst stadium-related disaster in British history.
