West Midlands Police said 10 men, including the musician, have been charged by police investigating the death of Fidel Glasgow in Coventry
Mr Glasgow, who is the grandson of Specials singer Neville Staple, died in hospital after being stabbed outside Club M during a mass brawl in the early hours of September 1 2018.

Nine others were also charged with violent disorder and will appear at Coventry Magistrates’ Court on April 28.
Salieu wrote on Instagram: “Due to ongoing investigations, I am unable to comment on the detail surrounding the fateful events that occurred back in September 2018.
“Sadly, my close friend Fidel Glasow (AP) was taken from us well before his time.”
He said he is “engaging with the justice system”, adding: “Please be sensitive to the fact that a real family like yours has lost a loved one. RIP AP.”
