When the mind is cast back to the tragedy that occurred at the Heysel Stadium on 29 May 1985, on the night of the European Cup Final between Juventus and Liverpool, one is struck by conflicting emotions.

There are the memories of those who were there that evening and who have been unable to watch a football match through the same eyes because those events in Bruxelles day mark a watershed moment.

There is the disbelief of those who may not even have been born yet, but when they look at those images, they find it hard to believe that a disaster on that scale could actually have happened at a football stadium.

Then there is the ongoing drama of the thirty-nine families that saw their lives change that fateful night. The families of the victims, to whom we will forever embrace, in thought and in memory, today and every day.

Because Heysel is a memory that lasts - and must last - forever.
