Police renew appeal over Fidel Glasgow fatal stabbing - as Club M in Coventry keeps licence

Editorial Correspondent 1st Oct, 2018 Updated: 1st Oct, 2018

POLICE have re-issued an appeal for witnesses four weeks on from the death of The Specials’ Neville Staple’s grandson Fidel Glasgow – as Club M was allowed to keep its licence.

A licensing review on Friday heard that the venue – outside which the 21-year-old was fatally stabbed – has plans to become a crazy golf venue, a new business model which satisfied the committee.

Detectives are still urging anyone who saw what happened in the early hours of Saturday September 1 outside the venue in Croft Road, city centre, to come forward.

Fidel suffered fatal stab wounds after violence flared. He was found in Hertford Place died in hospital hours later. Another man was also seriously injured.

One 23-year-old man has been charged with disorder and another man, aged 23, remains on police bail after being arrested on suspicion of murder.

Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, from the force’s homicide unit, said: “Just because we have made one arrest for Fidel’s murder does not mean our investigation is at an end. This is very much a live investigation, and we are determined to get to the bottom of what happened that morning.

“Someone has the answers we seek and I am urging anyone with a conscience to come forward and tell us what they know.”

Fidel’s killing has renewed anti-knife crime campaigning in Coventry and beyond, spearheaded by Neville and Christine Sugary Staple, notably when they performed at Coventy’s Godiva Festival hours after news of the tragedy emerged.

West Midlands Police can be contacted via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am to midnight, on 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
