The 96 Hillsborough victims have been honored with the Freedom of the City of Liverpool.
The posthumous awards will be collected by families of the Liverpool fans who died in the disaster on April 15th 1989.
Kenny Dalglish, the Liverpool Manager on the day of the tragedy and his wife have also received the award Freedom of the City.
Five months ago the jury at a landmark inquest found that the 96 victims were unlawfully killed and that a catalogue of police failings contributed to their death.
The Hillsborough disaster was a human crush at Hillsborough Football Stadium in Sheffield, England in 1989, during the 1988/89 FA Cup Semi-final game between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.
With 96 fatalities and 766 injured it is the worst disaster in British sporting history and remains one of the worst recorded football disasters worldwide.
