A ceremony commemorating the 40th anniversary of the death of Blackpool fan Kevin Olsson at Bloomfield Road.

The family of a football fan stabbed to death on the terraces fear they will never see his killer brought to justice.

Blackpool supporters gathered to remember 17-year-old Kevin Olsson, who died on the old Bloomfield Road Kop 40 years ago today during a match against Bolton Wanderers.

Kevin’s brother Geoffrey was among those to attend yesterday’s ceremony at the stadium.
