A 27-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of John Roberts, from Winlaton in Gateshead, who died of head injuries in December.
On Saturday, police handed out leaflets to Newcastle United fans asking for information about Roberts, nicknamed 'The Badge' because he sold badges during NUFC matches.
