   marking 60 years since the Munich air crash which killed 23 people, including eight Manchester United players, will take place later today.

The crash on 6 February 1958 came after a refuelling stop as United returned from a European Cup tie in Belgrade.

Eight players, three club staff, eight journalists, two crew members and two passengers died as a result of it.

The Old Trafford service at 14:45 GMT will include a minute's silence at 15:04, the time of the crash.

The club also held a silence before the Premier League home game against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Former United players Sir Bobby Charlton and Harry Gregg, who both survived the crash, will be at the ground for the service.
