Anne Williams began a solo campaign to establish what had really happened to her son (Kevin). Her appeals for the truth gradually became more and more strident, but she found herself repeatedly brushed aside by officials and the judiciary. However, despite no legal training, and lacking formal organisational support of any kind, she refused to give up.

As her efforts gathered momentum, Anne Williams organised an independent pressure group called Hope For Hillsborough, which later joined forces with the larger Hillsborough Justice Campaign – which she went on to chair. Although she became one of the figureheads for the victims’ families in their quest for justice, her day-to-day routine was one of toil, doggedness and forensic probing that would have done credit to a seasoned professional investigator.

She realised that only by tracking down and identifying witnesses to the events at Hillsborough would she stand any chance of getting at the truth. Working from her kitchen table, and in the face of repeated stonewalling from the police and other official agencies, she began writing letters and cold-calling on the telephone, gradually amassing dozens of files and thousands of pages of evidence, painstakingly assembled from statements and interviews from police officers and paramedics who had dealt with the dead and dying on the day, even tracking down the rescuers who had pulled her son from the Hillsborough crush and carried him clear on a piece of advertising hoarding.

I feel like this is a Fight Club situation where I don’t even want to talk about it so I don’t jinx anything.
