Police failures were to blame for the deaths of 96 Liverpool football fans in the 1989 Hillsborough Stadium crush, a jury concluded Tuesday after two years of hearings into Britain's worst sporting disaster.The verdicts of "unlawful killing," which could pave the way for prosecutions, were greeted with a mix of cheers and tears by relatives of the victims, who sang the Liverpool fans' anthem "You'll never walk alone" outside the court in Warrington, northern England.They had campaigned for almost three decades to get "Justice for the 96," refusing to accept the deaths as accidental and accusing police of covering up exactly what happened.The jury overseeing the inquests heard evidence from about 1,000 witnesses, making them the longest jury proceedings ever held in England.It absolved Liverpool fans of any role in causing the disaster.
