A 42-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the investigation into the death of a Wales fan who suffered head injuries at Wembley.

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

Police said a man from Worcestershire was arrested on Tuesday and taken to a West Mercia police station.

Another man, Ian Mytton, 41, has been charged with manslaughter.

Mr Mytton, from Worcestershire, appeared in court on Monday and was remanded in custody until 20 September.

Metropolitan Police said the 42-year-old man arrested remained in custody.

Three other men who attended a West Mercia police station on Sunday had been arrested by Metropolitan Police officers and bailed to return in early November.

An inquest into Mr Dye's death was opened and adjourned on Tuesday.

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

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