Investigators have released images of five people they wish to speak to about the Hillsborough tragedy.

The potential witnesses are thought to have helped some of the 96 Liverpool fans who died at the FA Cup semi-final on April 15 1989.

On behalf of Hillsborough inquests coroner Sir John Goldring, the images have been released by Operation Resolve, which was set up by Home Secretary Theresa May to investigate whether any individuals or organisations are criminally culpable for their part in the disaster.

A total of 33 people have been identified so far following similar appeals in recent weeks.

Assistant Commissioner Jon Stoddart, who is running Operation Resolve, which is assisting the coroner’s work, said of the witness appeal last month: “There are still many questions that the families of the 96 have and we believe that these people may be able to provide answers to some of those questions.”

The inquests have recently moved into a new phase, in which the circumstances involving each individual death is being examined.

Evidence is setting out the narrative of the day for each of the victims from when they arrived at the FA Cup semi-final, how they got in, which terrace pen they went into, their experience in the pens and what happened following the crush that led to their deaths.

The public are asked to visit www.operationresolve.co.uk to view the gallery of pictures and they can call 08000 283284 if they can identify an image.
