A teenager who was part of a group that left a rival football fan with a life-changing brain injury has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Daniel Lloyd was one of six Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters who attacked Watford fan Nic Cruwys after a match at Molineux in March 2015.

Mr Cruwys, 44, spent three weeks in a coma after the incident.

The other five teenagers involved have already been sentenced at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Lloyd, of Longfellow Road in Sedgeley, was also handed an eight-year football banning order.

Wolverhampton Wanderers said all six will be banned from attending matches at Molineux for life.
