Timeline of horror

2pm: The Leppings Lane turnstiles began operating smoothly, but after 2.15pm the volume of fans increased.

2.30pm: The road was closed. Fans were asked over the PA system to move forward and spread out in the space. Officers considered delayed the kick-off but did not.

2.40pm: Large crowds had built up outside the turnstiles.

2.44pm: Fans were asked to stop pushing, though crowding was already bad and the turnstiles were struggling to cope.

2.47pm to 2.57pm: Some external gates were opened to relieve pressure on the turnstiles – which caused fans to rush forward and crowd the pens even more. Pressure built up, and narrow gates in two of the pens were opened. Officers thought fans were deliberately invading the pitch.

2.58pm: 2,000 fans rush through Gate C

3pm: Kick-off. By this time the crush at the front of the pens was intolerable.
