Liverpool is to come to a standstill this week as it marks the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. The bells of Liverpool's two cathedrals and its civic buildings will ring out in memory of the 96 football fans who tragicly died at Sheffield Wednesday's stadium on that awful day, 15th April 1989.

Public transport in the city will be coming to a stand still for two minutes at 3:06pm on Wednesday, exactly 20 years after the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

Many people weren't alive when this happened (including me), but they still feel the sadness and share the prayers for the families of the tragedy.
