Operation Resolve appeal for witnesses; calling Leeds fans


Operation Resolve is looking to speak to Leeds United supporters who were at Hillsborough for the 1987 semi-final between Leeds United and Coventry City. There are over 70 comments on this blog from Leeds fans who were there, which can be read here: 


This is the message from Graham Coates at Operation Resolve: 

Operation Resolve is the independent criminal investigation into the deaths of 96 Liverpool supporters at Hillsborough Stadium on 15/4/89. The investigation team is also providing assistance to the Coroner, Lord Justice Goldring, in relation to the inquests, which commenced on 31st March 2014.

In November 2011 I requested responses from Leeds fans who would be willing to be interviewed about their experiences of the Leeds v Coventry 1987 semi-final at Hillsborough. Operation Resolve  is keen to speak with a number of you who kindly responded in order to collate evidence of comparison between the two fixtures for both the criminal and coronial inquiries.
