Hillsborough inquests 'taken its toll' on victim's mother

The mother of a Welsh football fan who died as a result of a crush in the Hillsborough disaster has welcomed a conclusion he was unlawfully killed.

John McBrien, 18, from Holywell, Flintshire, and David Steven Brown, 25, from Wrexham, were two of 96 Liverpool fans who died on 15 April 1989.

An inquest jury found police errors and defects at the stadium contributed to the disaster.

Mr McBrien's mother Joan Hope said she was "very pleased" with the conclusion but added the last 27 years had taken its toll.
