Man Comes Forward After CCTV Appeal Over Attack On Watford Fan In Wolverhampton
A man's come forward to police after CCTV images were released of someone officers wanted to speak to over an attack on a Watford fan in Wolverhampton.
West Midlands Police said the 20-year-old man had identified himself to officers conducting inquiries into the attack on Watford fan Nic Cruwys.

The 44-year-old, who was taken to hospital in a critical condition, is awaiting a placement at a specialist rehabilitation unit.
Detective Inspector Toni Naylor, who is leading the inquiry, said: "As a result of police releasing the image of a man we wanted to identify in relation to the assault, a man telephoned officers in Wolverhampton last night and we will be speaking to him later today.
"The investigation remains ongoing and I would urge anyone with information to call police."
