A special late edition of the paper, produced following the unlawful killings verdict was announced by a jury earlier in the day, featured lyrics from the Liverpool football anthem 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
Over a backdrop of the Royal Liver Building at sunset, it read: "After the end of the storm is a golden sky."
The families and friends of Liverpool supporters killed in the Hillsborough disaster cheered jurors from court after they concluded the 96 football fans had been unlawfully killed.
Declaring that justice had finally been done, there were shouts of “God bless the jury” as the conclusions into Britain’s worst sporting disaster were read out. They found it was unlawful killing by a 7-2 majority.
Lawyers acting for the families said the conclusions, at the end of the longest jury case in British legal history, had completely vindicated their tireless 27-year battle.
The Hillsborough disaster unfolded during Liverpool’s FA Cup semi-final tie against Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989 as thousands of fans were crushed at Sheffield Wednesday’s ground.
