The body of John Alder, who was killed in the MH17 disaster, has been formally identified.
The life-long Newcastle United supporter had reportedly only missed one match in 50 years. Mr Alder was known as the Undertaker among the fans "because he always wore a black suit and white shirt to every match", his neighbour said.
The 63-year-old from Gateshead was travelling with Liam Sweeney, 28, to watch Newcastle United play in New Zealand.
