On 15 April 1989, 95 people were crushed to death at a Cup semi-final match at Hillsborough Stadium. The inquiry subsequently commissioned by the Secretary of State had wide terms of reference - embracing crowd control and safety at sports events of all kinds. Lord Justice Taylor's final report is clear and comprehensive, and, as he explains in his introduction, is unusual in that it includes his own views. Part 1 states some lessons to be learnt from Hillsborough, examines the state of both football today and proposes a range of measure to give it a better future. Part 2 considers, in detail, measures to improve safety at sports grounds. Part 3 is concerned with crowd control at sports grounds and various strategies for dealing with hooligans. Part 4 considers the provisions of the 1989 Act regarding the national membership scheme and, finally, there is a list of recommendations.
