Children's author Michael Morpurgo is calling for a former Northampton Town footballer to be given a posthumous award for his service during the First World War. Walter Tull was the first black officer in the British Army but was killed in action in 1918.
Morpurgo, who has written a book based on Tull's life, says the footballer and Army officer was an "extraordinary, heroic man".
