Leeds United fans pay tribute to Gary Speed

Leeds United fans have spoken of their shock and sadness at the death of the club's former player Gary Speed, as they gathered at Elland Road to pay tribute to the Wales football manager.

Cheshire Police found Speed, 42, dead at 07:08 GMT on Saturday at his home in Huntington, Chester. There are no suspicious circumstances.

He began his playing career at Leeds after coming through the trainee ranks, and was part of the side that won the last Football League title in 1992, before the introduction of the Premier League.

The BBC's Ed Thomas spoke to some supporters who shared their memories of a man much admired as a player and as a person.
