Singer pays tribute to tube shooting victim

Quietus hero Morrissey dedicated a song to Jean Charles de Menezes during his show at Brixton O2 Academy last night.

Before starting 'Irish Blood, English Heart', Moz said: "Jean Charles de Menezes, we will never forget, we will never forget."

De Menezes was mistakenly shot by police four years ago at Stockwell tube station, which is close to last night's venue.
