The family of a Black Country man killed in Majorca has launched an appeal to bring his body home.

Daniel Hastelow from Walsall Wood was stabbed to death on his 26th birthday in January. He had been working as a barman in the resort of Magaluf.

The family hopes to raise a total of 35,000 to cover their legal fees in the trial of his alleged killers and bring his body back home.

The cost of returning Mr Hastelow's body to the UK is about 10,000.

His sister Claire Peters said it was difficult to travel to Spain with family and work commitments and the family wanted Mr Hastelow to be buried in Walsall Wood.

"When you want to visit the grave you're only up the road then," she said.
