Man sentenced for Wembley killing

A Redditch man who admitted killing a Wales football fan outside Wembley Stadium will be sentenced at the Old Bailey.

Ian Mytton, 41, of Gately Close, Redditch, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of father-of-three Michael Dye last month.

Mr Dye, a Cardiff City fan, died from head injuries inflicted before a crucial Euro 2012 qualifier between England and Wales on September 6.

The 44-year-old was taken to Northwick Park Hospital after suffering a fractured skull on a concourse next to the stadium, in north-west London, but died shortly after his arrival.

Mr Dye, known to many as Mikey, worked for Cardiff council’s highways department.

The long-time Bluebirds fan wrote about his team on the Cardiff City Forum internet site.

A Facebook page called RIP MIKE DYE set up after his death has 10,122 followers.

One tribute, from Paul Hill, read: “A true gent and a man of honour, a father and family man, sadly missed but well remembered, this man gave his all in life and was cheated out of it … never forgotten mike RIP. XX2”.
