As is the custom, Anfield will stage a memorial service today to mark the 18th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. 

It is organised annually by the Hillsborough Family Support Group to remember the 96 victims of the tragedy.
The service will be inter-denominational and will take place on the Kop at Anfield. It will commence at 2.45pm, include a minute's silence at 3.06pm and concludes at about 3.30pm with the singing of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
There will be readings from David Moores, Kenny Dalglish and Jamie Carragher. All are welcome to attend the service.
Tickets are not required and we extend an open invitation to you to join the families, the Directors, officials and players of LFC plus thousands of fellow football fans in our annual act of remembrance. This year is expected to be exceptionally well attended and we would ask that you allow adequate time and plan to be in your seats by about 2pm.
Phil Hammond, Chairman of the Hillsborough Family Support Group said: "We light a candle to remember each individual life that was extinguished prematurely and we rely upon the eternal flame of the Hillsborough Memorial to burn some light into the darkest night."
