Former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar recalls how the family of a Hillsborough victim initially blamed him for their son's death when he went to visit them in the aftermath of the disaster.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live's Hillsborough's Untold Stories - which marks the 25th anniversary of the disaster in which 96 Liverpool fans died - Grobbelaar describes how he was turned away at the door of a family in Birkenhead "because their son went to watch us play".
He adds that the Liverpool players eventually began talking with fans, and embraced and counselled each other.
