TWO Herefordshire brothers who escaped the horror of Hillsborough made a poignant return to the stadium this week.

Andy and Mark Bevan, from St Weonards, witnessed the disaster that shocked the nation 25 years ago.

The brothers, along with their cousin Chris Taylor, made it off the terraces - 96 others were not so fortunate.

The siblings admit they still struggle to come to terms with what happened on the day Liverpool met Nottingham Forest.

This past Sunday saw the trio travel to Hillsborough for the first time as a group since the horror.

But although they could face travelling to Sheffield, Andy admitted that they still cannot bring themselves to watch television footage from the day.

He said: "We have got five or six videos of the coverage and we are all going to watch it one day, but I don't know when.

"It just goes silent whenever the news is on about it and we all hold our breath - it is still difficult."

The trio are currently at Anfield as part of a 25th anniversary memorial service.
