Three arrests over murder of The Specials singer Neville Staple’s grandson

Three men have been arrested during dawn raids by detectives investigating the murder of the grandson of The Specials singer Neville Staple.

Five warrants were executed and the men, aged between 19 and 21, have been detained on suspicion of the murder of Fidel Glasgow.

The 21-year-old was fatally stabbed outside the Club M nightclub in central Coventry on September 1 last year.  

Detective Inspector Michelle Allen, from West Midlands Police’s homicide unit, said: ‘We have not let up on our investigation in Fidel’s murder during the past year.

Following extensive CCTV enquiries and a large number of witness statements, we have arrested three men this morning.’

Fidel was found at the rear of Club M on Croft Road in the city centre in September but later died at University Hospital Coventry

Late last year, the Specials frontman Neville Staple called on witnesses to his grandson’s fatal stabbing to ‘grass up’ the killer.

The ‘Ghost Town’ singer said the death of Fidel Glasgow had left him ‘numb’.

Neville said: ‘If anybody was there or seen anything you don’t have to worry about anyone saying anything to the police or grassing if they do it anonymously.

‘There was a lot people who tried to help by stepping in and those are the people we need to come forward – if they did it would be brilliant.’

‘Fidel was a lovely guy, he was a bright and smiley youngster. We used to have a lot of fun and he even asked me to help to start his own clothing line.

‘Our message to people out there would be if you feel like to need to carry a knife when you go out, then don’t go out.’
