 Football News 24/7

The final Anfield memorial service for the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster has been held in Liverpool.

The annual event had been staged at Liverpool's stadium since the tragedy in Sheffield on 15 April 1989.

In January, relatives of the victims said they had "unanimously agreed" this year's service would be the last.

A minute's silence was held across Liverpool at 15:06 BST - the time when the FA Cup semi-final was abandoned following a terrace crush.
