Moeen Ali earlier hit three 6s on his way to scoring 67 off 50 balls, which helped a stuttering England to a total India bettered with ease.

Police say Mr Shillam, who was registered disabled, was punched and kicked for more than an hour. He was a father of three, with three step-children, and lived with his elderly mother.
