Jurors deciding what caused the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster are set to deliver their verdicts, ending an inquest lasting more than two years.

The original verdicts of accidental death were overturned in 2012, and a new inquest into Britain's worst sporting disaster was ordered.

The jury has considered 14 questions set out by the coroner, including determining if the police officer in charge was responsible. The verdicts will be delivered Tuesday.

The coroner, John Goldring, told nine jurors he could accept a decision of 7-2 or 8-1 on one remaining question they hadn't agreed on — whether Liverpool fans were unlawfully killed.

A crush in an overcrowded standing-only section in at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield at an FA Cup semifinal match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest led to the deaths.
