Hillsborough tribute single tipped for No. 1

The Hillsborough tribute single, a cover of The Hollies’ He Ain’t Heavy by the Justice Collective, is tipped to be the British Christmas Number One.

This week a new investigation into the 1989 disaster in which 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives has been ordered and the original ‘accidental death’ verdicts were also overturned.

In September the Hillsborough Independent Panel said a ‘failure in police control’ was to blame for the disaster and found police and emergency services had made ‘strenuous attempts’ to deflect the blame for the disaster on to the fans.

The Justice Collective includes Sir Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, Mel C, Holly Johnson and many more.

All proceeds will go to the victims’ families.
