When You Walk Through the Storm is the moving story of Anne Williams, whose son Kevin died in the Hillsborough disaster in 1989. It is a remarkable personal account of a mother's determination to discover the true circumstances of her son's death on that tragic afternoon. She vividly relates the grief she felt when she realised Kevin wasn't coming home, followed by the anger she experienced on discovering that he could have been saved. In the aftermath of the tragedy, controversy raged over who had been responsible for the events, and Anne describes her feelings towards those who, she felt, had blood on their hands. Finally, she became embroiled in a bitter fight for justice for her son. When You Walk Through the Storm has been substantially revised and updated following the announcement in October 2012, in the wake of the report of the Hillsborough Independent Panel, that the Independent Police Complaints Commission is to investigate the failure of West Yorkshire Police to declare a major incident on the day, as well as numerous other damning claims.
