A vigil has been held for a man who died after being attacked on a night out in Liverpool 10 years ago.

Andrew Jones, 18, from Walton, fell and hit his head when he was punched in Hanover Street on Sunday 9 March 2003, and died the next day.

Family and friends laid flowers at the scene on Sunday in his memory.

His parents and police have released a video appeal for anyone with information about the attack to come forward.

Mr Jones's mother, Christine, said on Sunday: "It's Mother's Day and I would like to be able to go out for a meal with Andrew and the rest of my family like everyone else, but instead I will be campaigning for justice for him."

'Harrowing experience'

A £10,000 reward is being offered by charity Crimestoppers for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone responsible for his death.

Police made an appeal to football fans at the Everton v Wigan match at Goodison on Saturday, distributing posters and using advertising boards.

Big screens in the city centre also featured the appeal, posters were displayed at bus stops and on buses across the city and police are set to make a renewed appeal on BBC's Crimewatch programme.

Det Supt Dave Brunskill said: "The sense of loss to Andrew's family has not gone away.

"His family has been through a harrowing experience, both in terms of losing their son and then left feeling that justice hasn't been done.

"Someone knows what happened that night and knows who is responsible - now is the time to search your conscience, to realise the pain that Andrew's family still feel to this day and to do the right thing."
