A picture of Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi holding what appears to be a rifle, next to what looks like a ram has been posted on a social networking site.

In the Instagram photo, the Kuwaiti millionaire holds the gun in his right hand, and rests his left hand on the animal's horns.

The ram is the mascot and nickname of Forest's main rivals, Derby County.

Earlier that day, a picture was posted to Al-Hasawi's account showing him posing in sunglasses beside a dead stag.

ITV News Central contacted Mr Al-Hasawi for a comment.

Jill Brooke, a PC in 1989, tried to help a colleague giving artificial respiration to Colin Wafer on the pitch but somebody announced he was dead.

We are not medical people so we have to keep working as long as we can in the hope that we are going to get some response.

Mrs Brooke said the 19 year old bank clerk did not appear to show any signs of life during her time with him.

The inquest into his death heard that Colin had gone to the match alone on a coach from Liverpool. His body was identified by his brother in the early hours of the following morning.
