Man admits Wembley killing of fan
Tuesday 15 November 2011
A 41-year old man today admitted killing a Wales football fan who died from head injuries outside Wembley Stadium.
Ian Mytton, of Gately Close, Redditch, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Michael Dye, the Old Bailey heard.
Mr Dye died from blunt force trauma to the back of his head.
The injury was inflicted before the England football team's Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales on September 6.
Appearing in court via video link from jail, Mytton admitted the manslaughter of Mr Dye, a Cardiff City fan.
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, at 7.20pm, but died shortly after his arrival.
Mr Dye, known to many as Mikey, was a long-time Cardiff City fan who wrote about the Bluebirds on the Cardiff City Forum internet site.
He worked in the highways department of Cardiff Council.
Mytton will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on December 21.
