UK: Six men bailed over the death of football fan outside Wembley Stadium

UK: Six men arrested over the death of a football fan attacked outside Wembley Stadium before the England versus Wales Euro 2012 qualifier have been bailed, police said.

Wales supporter Mike Dye, 44, of Cardiff, south Wales, died after an incident outside the stadium before kick-off on Tuesday.

The men detained in connection with the incident, aged between their late 20s and early 40s and all believed to be Wales supporters, will return to speak to police officers again on dates in November, Scotland Yard said.

Four of those released are from north Wales, while the other two are originally from south east Wales but live in England, the Met added.

Mr Dye was found with head injuries on a concourse area outside the turnstiles at the venue at around 7.20pm.

Paramedics revealed he had also suffered a heart attack before being rushed to a north London hospital.

Colleagues at Cardiff Council, where Mr Dye worked in the highways department, are said to be devastated.
