Hillsborough tributes read out

The first pen portraits of the 96 people who died in the Hillsborough disaster were read out at the inquests into the tragedy in Warrington.

There were emotional scenes in the courtroom as family members came to the witness box to recount memories of their loved ones.

The statements made in the court by families are the first of dozens the jury of seven women and four men will hear over the coming weeks.

This process of presenting the pen portraits is due to take until the end of the month, with the inquest not sitting during the week of the 25th anniversary of the tragedy.

The coroner adjourned the inquests until Monday.
