    BBC Sport Bells to toll for Hillsborough 96

    A memorial service will be held at Liverpool FC's Anfield stadium Bells in Liverpool will toll 96 times later as the city remembers those who died in the Hillsborough disaster.
    The bells at Liverpool Town Hall will ring during a minute silence at 15:06 BST, the moment the match was halted.
    The media wall at Lime Street station will also display images of all 96 victims of the crush at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final at the Hillsborough stadium.
    A memorial service marking the 26th anniversary of the disaster is to be held at Anfield stadium.
    'Never forget'

    Actress Sue Johnston, who has been a life-long fan of the club, will speak at the event.

    Flags on civic buildings will also fly at half mast and the Mersey Ferry will sound its horn while barriers at the Mersey tunnels will lower to observe the anniversary.
    Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: "We will never forget those who died at Hillsborough, and this is a day for us to unite as a city and remember each one and also their families and friends left behind."
    The new inquests into the deaths of the 96 Liverpool fans will resume on 20 April at Birchwood Park, Warrington.
    They started in March 2014 and are expected to continue until early 2016.
