Now esteemed Liverpool writer Evans has joined the chorus of criticism, saying the revellers had let every fan down – particularly those involved in securing justice for the Hillsborough victims.

"It’s allowed the Hillsborough deniers to come out the closet and it will allow Conservatives, and people like that, to bash football fans.
