Graham Mackrell, the Sheffield Wednesday club secretary at the time of the Hillsborough disaster, was today sentenced at Preston Crown Court.

As a result of the events during the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989, ninety-six supporters lost their lives.

In April this year, a jury found Mackrell guilty of breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 by failing to take reasonable care to have sufficient turnstiles available for the match.

At his sentencing today, Mackrell was ordered to pay a £6,500 fine by the judge, Sir Peter Openshaw.
