Byline: ALEXANDER BRITTON

THE Specials singer Neville Staple has spoken about the "heartbreaking loss" of his grandson, who was stabbed to death aged 21.

Fidel died in hospital after being injured in Coventry in the early hours of Saturday.

Staple wrote on Facebook: "We are truly devastated to announce the heartbreaking loss of my grandson Fidel (my daughter Melanie's son).

"We want to thank the hospital staff and surgeons who battled all day to try to save him."

Staple last night dedicated his performance with his Neville Staple Band at the Godiva Festival in Coventry to Fidel.

A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder.
