Detectives investigating the murder of a 21-year-old man outside a nightclub in 2018 have charged 10 men with violent disorder.

Fidel Glasgow, the grandson of Specials singer Neville Staple, died in hospital after being stabbed outside Coventry’s Club M during a mass brawl, which also resulted in a 23-year-old man suffering stab wounds.

No one has yet been charged with Mr Glasgow’s murder, despite a lengthy inquiry by West Midlands Police, including appeals for information about suspects recorded on CCTV at the scene in the early hours of September 1, 2018.

In a statement issued on Thursday, West Midlands Police said the Crown Prosecution Service has authorised charges against 10 men, including for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to the 23-year-old, violent disorder and possession of offensive weapons.

Detective Inspector Michelle Allen, from the force’s homicide unit, said: “We are still actively investigating Fidel’s murder and these charges are a significant step forward in our search for his killer.

“Fidel’s family have been fully updated with these latest developments and we remain in close contact with them.

“We continue to ask anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward.”

Nine men from Coventry and one from Nuneaton, aged between 20 and 33, will appear at the city’s magistrates’ court on April 28.
