Simon Dobbin: Football fan dies five years after hooligan attack

A football fan who suffered horrific injuries when he was attacked by opposition hooligans in 2015 has died.

Simon Dobbin, 48, was left brain-damaged in the assault after a match in Southend, Essex, five years ago.

The Cambridge United fan died in his sleep at his home in Mildenhall, Suffolk, in the early hours of Wednesday, his wife Nicole said.

Essex Police will now "review the initial investigation", a spokesman said.

Mrs Dobbin said her husband's death had come as a shock, as he had been "his usual self, laughing and smiling the day before".
