Mr. Glasgow was found injured at the rear of the nightclub and was rushed to hospital – where he later died. A 23-year-old man was also stabbed and taken to hospital with serious injuries, from which he later recovered.
Fidel’s grandfather Neville, who was the frontman of the 1970s ska band The Specials, later appealed for witnesses to come forward with information.
Now, more than two years on, West Midlands Police have today announced they have charged 10 men with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, violent disorder and possession of offensive weapons.
