On Facebook, Mr Wyatt’s brother, Julien wrote: “Thanks for all your kind messages and words of support. I’ve not got time or frankly the patience to reply to everyone right now but my brother lost his fight, his body just could not deal with the extent of injury. I just hope the animal that did this never walks as a free man again. If he does then god help him, this will never be forgotten. Anyway; he’s been charged with murder and we now await a court date..

“I’m sorry I couldn’t help in any way or do something to prevent this happening Dan, there are some nasty, cowardly people out there. Love you bro, watch over us please xxx”

He also shared a Staffordshire Police post which announced Alston being charged and added: “If anybody was in the area, saw anything or heard anything, please come forward and let the police know.”
