RECIFE: The Parana football federation has offered a reward of £1,500 for information leading to the arrest of a murderous fan.

Ricardo Gomes da Silva Arruda died after being hit on the head with a toilet seat thrown down from an upper tier at the end of a state second division game between Parana and Santa Cruz last Friday.

Police superintendent Carmela Galindo said a 24-hour hotline had been set up for access by anyone with information which would be treated with total confidentiality.
