More witnesses to the Hillsborough Disaster who assisted dying fans are being sought by investigators.

Officials from Operation Resolve are trying to trace a number of people who were at the game on the day of the 1989 disaster when 96 Liverpool supporters died.

A new aerial photograph of the Sheffield Wednesday stadium has been released today as part of the appeal.

Witnesses are sought who were in the concourse area of Leppings Lane on April 15, 1989 between 3pm and 4.15pm and assisted a male who appeared to be unconscious and was bare-chested.

Witnesses are sought who may have seen and/or assisted the male at one or more of the following locations - the concourse entrance to the tunnel under the West Stand (Point A on the photograph), the concourse area (Point B) and the service road by the River Don (Point C).

It is hoped those involved will come forward and may be able to assist with the ongoing inquest process taking place in Warrington.

More than 100 images of supporters, police officers and other witnesses have been released to the public in the past few months, with 42 people identified as a result so far.

A total of 59 people remain unidentified from the appeals that have been made to date.
