A jury has been sworn in for the trial of Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield.The former South Yorkshire Police chief superintendent, 74, denies the gross negligence manslaughter of 95 Liverpool fans during the 1989 FA Cup semi-final.Ex-Sheffield Wednesday club secretary Graham Mackrell, 69, is charged alongside Mr Duckenfield with offences relating to safety at the stadium.Jurors were selected from a panel of 29 at Preston Crown Court.Under the law at the time, there can be no prosecution for the death of the 96th victim, Tony Bland, as he died more than a year and a day after his injuries were caused.
Mr Duckenfield, from Bournemouth, was the police officer in charge at the match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989.
