Footage released by the Hillsborough inquest.
He said he had talked to Det Supt Graham McKay on the way to the gymnasium, and from McKay, Addis said, I got most of the gist of what happened. Although Addis did not specify what he was told, McKay, who opened testify at the investigations, has always vehemently established the example that Liverpool advocates misbehaved and were drunk.
An remarkable show was that at 5.58 pm, with so many people dead, injured and traumatised, a police auditor, Gordon Sykes, mailed a troop photographer to take pictures of litter outside. Mark George QC, for 22 bereaved houses, accused him of excavating for dirt to establish evidence of booze by advocates outside. Sykes denied that but acknowledged it was to gain evidence of whats been happening, one route or the other.
In fact, the photographs established
the bins outside the Leppings Lane objective, which 24,000 Liverpool advocates had guided, about a third full, predominantly of soft drinks cans including Vimto, Sprite and Coke, with a few cases beer bottles or cans.
Addis decided all the determining should take place in one location, so he told the bodies of 12 people who had been taken to hospital and licensed dead to be undertaken back to Hillsborough where the other 82 organizations were being saved. The other two victims were Lee Nicol, 14, who was declared dead 2 days later, and Tony Bland, then 18, who was saved on life is supportive of four years, before he died in 1993.
SYMAS had equipped organization suitcases to transport the bodies to Sheffields medico-legal centre, a state-of-the-art mortuary designed for sensitive management of relatives. Addis, in his evidence, said he believed it was too small.
At the gymnasium, houses were made to queue outside in the cold, clear nighttime, then eventually brought in and told to look through Polaroid photographs of all those who died , not grouped by age or gender. Kinfolks whose loved ones had bus proceeds or other identifying reports on them were
also made to go through this process. When their dead relatives were brought out to them, they were in those organization suitcases. Various mothers testified that they were told they could not deem or kiss their dead offsprings since they are the property of the coroner.
Dr Stefan Popper, the coroner, who approved the arrangements, told blood samples to be taken from all victims and experimented for booze even “their childrens”, including
Jon-Paul Gilhooley, the youngest, aged 10. It has now been has showed that some people lying were injured during hospital also had their blood taken and experimented for booze. Popper has never fully explained why he decided it was appropriate to take and exam families blood.
