A football fan and father-of-two from Hemel Hempstead who was brutally beaten on the way back from a match has been moved out of intensive care and onto a special care ward, police have said.

Nic Cruwys was left with serious head injuries after being attacked in Wolverhampton on Saturday, March 7.

West Midlands Police said he is now on "a specialist care ward'' in hospital, where his condition is described as serious but stable.

Mr Cruwys was attacked in Little's Lane as he walked back to the city's railway station with friends after watching Watford draw with Wolves at the Molineux ground.

Police have arrested and questioned seven teenagers, aged 13 to 18, on suspicion of wounding Mr Cruwys but all the men have been bailed as investigations continue.

Detective Inspector Toni Naylor, leading the police inquiry, said the investigation was "still very much ongoing'' and has again asked for the public's help.

A page set up by a Wolves fan to raise money for Mr Cruwys has raised more than £36,000.
