True story of a Hillsborough mother and campaigner
A true-life drama series about the tragic FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough Stadium in 1989 – ‘Anne’ starts on Virgin Media One tomorrow night (Thursday) at 9pm.
The gripping four-week series tells the extraordinary story of Anne Williams, a Liverpool housewife whose 15-year-old son, Kevin, was tragically crushed to death at the match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.
Anne stood defiantly alongside other parents and families who fought for justice for the 96 who lost their lives at the football match.
Determined to unearth the truth about Hillsborough, Anne Williams refused to believe the official line on how the disaster unfolded, seeking medical opinion, tracking down witnesses whose statements had been altered or disregarded, challenging senior police officers and leaving no stone unturned in her fight for truth and justice.
Her determination to uncover the truth spanned twenty years, overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to win a verdict of unlawful killing for her son Kevin, and the 95 others who died at Hillsborough.
