The city came to a standstill at 3.06pm, the exact moment the FA Cup semi-final match against Nottingham Forest was stopped on April 5, 1989. Flags on civic buildings were flown at half mast and the bells of the Town Hall tolled 96 times, one for every Liverpool fan killed in the tragedy. Traffic going through tunnels linking the city to the Wirral was stopped and the Mersey Ferries marked the anniversary by sounding their horns. Earlier Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp led his players in paying tribute to the victims, as the first team squad laid wreaths at Anfield in memory of the 96 supporters who died (top left). They were joined by the Liverpool Ladies team, academy sides and chief executive officer Peter Moore ahead of a minutes silence at 3.06pm, the moment the match was abandoned exactly 30 years ago.
