The claims were brought by Alcock and several other claimants after the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, where 96 Liverpool fans died in a massive crush during the FA Cup Semi Final at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield. According to the Taylor Report (as well as the later report of the Hillsborough Independent Panel), the accident was caused by the police negligently allowing too many supporters to crowd in one part of the stadium. Many alleged to have seen their friends and relatives die in the crush and suffered psychiatric harm or nervous shock after the incident.
