Mr Richards’s 16-year-old brother Owen is reported to have survived the attack.

The three men were big fans of Walsall FC and a spokesperson for the club said their thoughts were with their family.
Fellow fans have been asked to show their support by laying scarves outside the main entrance on Monday morning.
