No further action against men bailed over Wembley Stadium death

No evidence to suggest the incident only involved Welsh football fans

The six men bailed following the death of a Welsh football fan outside Wembley Stadium will have no further action taken against them, police have said.

Michael Dye, 44, from Cardiff, died after he was found suffering from serious head injuries near Gate C of the Stadium before the England versus Wales Euro 2012 qualifier match on Tuesday.

Six men, between their late 20s and early 40s who are all believed to be Wales supporters, were arrested inside the ground in connection with the death and later bailed.

But police have issued a statement today saying no further action will be taken against the men.
