A Fateful Decision

BBC football commentator Steve Wilson looked back at the Hillsborough disaster the other day ( ) & recounted his own memories of that day:
"At about two o'clock on 15 April, I made my way into Hillsborough and was confronted by the low-ceilinged tunnel that led to the central terracing behind the goal - already full. I headed left."
Wilson's actions were chillingly similar to mine. Along with my brother & a friend, I felt that standing on the high bank of terracing adjacent to the North Stand, to the left of the central pens, would give us a better view of the game. We, too, headed left. It's one of those fateful decisions you never forget.
