An inquest into the death of a Wales fan who suffered head injuries at Wembley has been opened and adjourned.

Michael Dye, 44, from Cardiff, was found injured near Gate C of the stadium before last Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier against England.

The inquest at Barnet Coroners' Court heard that the provisional cause of death was blunt trauma to the head.

Ian Mytton, 41, of Worcestershire, appeared before magistrates on Monday charged with manslaughter.

The inquest, opened on Tuesday by the coroner for the northern district of London, Andrew Walker, lasted only a few minutes before being adjourned pending the court case.

Mr Mytton was remanded in custody on Monday until 20 September and will next appear before Worcester Crown Court.

Metropolitan Police are still appealing for witnesses to the incident in which Mr Dye, a Cardiff City supporter, died.
