Seven held over 'soccer murder'
Police officers outside the Cutty Sark
Duncan Frame of Plumstead was found unconscious at the scene
Seven men remain in custody after a pub brawl in south London between rival football fans which saw one man killed.

Duncan Frame, 52, of Plumstead, was killed during the disturbance at the Cutty Sark pub in Thamesmead, south-east London, on Saturday night.

A post-mortem examination has given head injuries and heart failure as the cause of death.

Twenty-one men were held after the brawl which erupted at a charity event. Fourteen have been released on bail.

"We will be working closely with the community to bring those responsible to justice," said Greenwich Borough Commander Peter Lowton.

It is believed the fight may have been between Spurs and Charlton fans.
