A distraught father has issued an emotion appeal for information relating to his son's death as a young West Ham fan was killed after attending a match at the London Olympic Stadium.

Samer Sidhom's 18-year-old son Sami was stabbed multiple times close to his Forest Gate home after he had watched West Ham draw 1-1 with Stoke City in April 2018.

And with the investigation still continuing and the perpetrators currently at large, Mr Sidhorn has implored witnesses or those with information to come forward.

"Sami was a wonderful son," he said. "He was a kind young man who always tried to help his family, friends and colleagues, and was respected by everyone who knew him. He did everything right. He fought hard to win his place in society and some cowards in the dark stabbed him in the back.

"My son's killers are still walking the streets free of conviction or charge. I need you to provide the evidence to convict them. You know who you are and you have a choice. A choice to be someone that hides in the dark, or a brave person who sets the record straight. If you know the killers you already know they killed a perfectly innocent person for no reason whatsoever.

"He has done nothing to anyone; he was never involved in anything and had nothing to do with his killers. The only person that would stop them from doing the same to you is you. You need to stand up and provide the evidence or information that will put them behind bars for a lifetime. You owe it to yourself and to an innocent brilliant young man.

"Your statement will be treated in complete confidence and you will be rewarded. There is a reward of ?20,000, but the ultimate reward is that you will get a new life where you know you stood up to the ones who would blindly destroy anything that comes their way.

"Every day they spend in freedom, Sami spends in a grave from which he'll never return. The brutality of his death is compounded by the indifference and the silence of those that can bring him justice.

"We, his family, relive his murder everyday knowing that a beloved son and an aspiring lawyer has been failed by everyone."

A reward of up to ?20,000 is being offered to anyone who can provide information that brings about the prosecution of those responsible for Sami's murder.
