Wembley death: Ian Mytton admits Michael Dye killing

A man has admitted the manslaughter of Wales football fan Michael Dye outside Wembley Stadium before September's England-Wales Euro 2012 qualifier.

Michael Dye, 44, who was also a Cardiff City fan, died of head injuries.

Ian Mytton, 41, from Redditch, Worcestershire, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey via video link from jail.

Mr Dye, a father-of-three from Cardiff, suffered a fractured skull on a concourse next to the stadium. Mytton will be sentenced on 21 December.

The court heard Mr Dye was taken to Northwick Park Hospital in north-west London with blunt force trauma to the back of his head at 7.20pm, but died shortly after his arrival.

Known to many as Mikey, Mr Dye, from Ely, worked as a stonemason for Cardiff council.

He was a long-time Cardiff fan who wrote about the club on the Cardiff City Forum website.

He was found injured outside Wembley's Gate C on 6 September before the Euro 2012 qualifier match.
