Hillsborough events

Gates were opened

Saturday Apr 15, 1989 at 02 AM
Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom

When the gates were opened, thousands of fans entered a narrow tunnel leading from the rear of the terrace into two overcrowded central pens (pens 3 and 4), creating pressure at the front. Hundreds of people were pressed against one another and the fencing by the weight of the crowd behind them.
