Man in court over Wembley fan death

A man will appear in court charged with the manslaughter of a Wales football fan who was found with fatal head injuries outside Wembley Stadium.

It comes as police continue to question three men arrested in connection with the death of 44-year-old Michael Dye, who was injured before England's Euro 2012 qualifier with Wales on September 6.

Ian Mytton, 41, of Gateley Close, Redditch, Worcestershire, is due to appear at Redditch Magistrates' Court later in connection with the death.

The three other men were arrested and taken to a police station in West Mercia where they were quizzed by officers from Scotland Yard. They remain in custody.

Mr Dye was found injured on an area of the concourse outside the stadium and was taken to Northwick Park Hospital but later died. The cause of death was found to be blunt trauma to the back of the head.

Tributes were paid to avid Cardiff City fan Mr Dye, including by the club's chief executive Gethin Jenkins.

A group was set up on Facebook in his memory, with many entries that mentioned his wife Nathalie and children.
