TitleJudicial Review
DescriptionAt the inquest , the Coroner, Dr Popper ruled that only events up until 3.15 pm would be considered, as by that time all the victims had received injuries which led to their deaths. In 1992-3 the families of the victims unsuccessfully challenged this in a judicial review in the High Court.

The application for the judicial review was submitted by the following families: Carlile, Glover, Sinclair (sister of Michael Kelly), Jones, Tootle and Williams. The families sought to quash the conclusion or verdict of accidental death recorded at the inquest on 28 March 1991.

This includes e.g. witness statements, transcripts of proceedings of the Taylor Inquiry (See CC5/5/19) and supporting papers.

The Case No. was CO/1009/92.
