Letter: Taking the blame for Hillsborough

Sir: If there is to be a fresh inquiry into the tragedy at Hillsborough (report, 27 June), would it be too much to ask that representation is taken from some of those who actually tried to cram themselves into the already overcrowded terraces, thereby generating the deadly crush?

No matter how many other factors were involved in the disaster, the fact remains that it was the awful dynamics of a moving crowd that caused so many deaths.This would be a prime opportunity for those people to accept that they played a massive role in what happened on that awful day, instead of trying to place responsibility solely at the feet of others.
