The family of a man killed in a street attack last year say they have been "let down" by the justice system.

Carl Tindall, 35, of Brocton, Stafford, died in hospital two days after he was found with serious head injuries in Cull Avenue on 22 August 2015.

A man was found not guilty of manslaughter at Stafford Crown Court last month, with three others cleared of assisting an offender.

Mr Tindall's family appealed for information to trace the attackers.

"We as a family only seek the truth about Carl's death so we can have some sort of closure, and we have to believe that one day the truth will be told," they said.

The family said they had been in court for every day of the trial and witnessed the CCTV footage of Mr Tindall's final moments.

They said they were "in shock" nobody has been "held accountable" over his death.

"We feel as a family that our justice system has let us down and that a jury should be provided all of the evidence to allow them to make a judgement," they said.

"We will do everything we can and will not rest until we get justice for Carl."
