Terminally-ill Oxford United fan thanks club and supporters

A terminally-ill Oxford United fan has thanked the club after its chairman sent him a message of support.

Steve Dyer was admitted to a hospice on Friday, prompting fans to pay tribute to him on BBC Oxford's Facebook page.

Club chairman Darryl Eales also recorded a video, dedicating Saturday's 2-1 win at Peterborough United to the 59-year-old.

Mr Dyer was given four months to live when he was diagnosed with bladder cancer in November 2015.
