Alcock concerned the 1989 Hillsborough Stadium Disaster in which, as a result of the admitted negligence of the police, 95 people were crushed to death and over 400 physically injured. Claims were brought by various relatives of victims of the disaster who were either present at the football ground or witnessed events on television.
