Teaching Hillsborough

Radio Clatterbridge presenter Steve Evans went back to school recently - to help teach youngsters about the lessons to be learnt from the Hillsborough disaster.

Steve, who is a member of LFC's Disabled Supporters' Association, helped organise the awareness day at South Wirral High School in Eastham.

Steve's wife Jeanette is a teacher at the school which he once attended.

Writer Jimmy McGovern joined Margaret Aspinall and Sue Roberts from the Hillsborough Family Support Group to talk to Year 9 and Year 10 pupils about the events surrounding and following the 1989 tragedy.

Young reds Adam Morgan, Jordan Lussey and Craig Roddan were also among the guests.

It follows a motion from Wirral Borough Council calling for Hillsborough to become part of the curriculum.
