Letter: We will never know the juror’s verdict

I WOULD like briefly to respond to the irate letter from John Fellows responding to previous correspondence from Mr H Allen regarding Hillsborough.

Fact and opinion are more closely entwined than Mr Fellows would have us believe.

The jury sat for two years listening to the evidence and at the conclusion a number of jurors found that in their opinion on the evidence they heard the supporters on the day played no part in the tragedy.

However, two jurors who had sat through and heard the self-same evidence had a different opinion and dissented from the decision by the other members of the jury.

As I understand it, another juror was released shortly before the verdicts were announced. We will never know what conclusion that juror may have arrived at.
