A memorial will be held later in Blackpool to pay tribute on the 40th anniversary of the murder of a teenage fan.

Blackpool fans will stop on their away trip to Wigan to lay a wreath at the memorial to 17-year-old Kevin Olsson, who was stabbed to death on the terraces at Bloomfield Road during a game on 24 August 1974.

Members of Blackpool Supporters Club will pause in silence by a memorial plaque near the club's shop at 1pm.

The teenage Blackpool fan was killed when trouble broke out at a game against Bolton.
