FOOTBALL fans applauded again today for tragic Arthur Labinjo-Hughes at the sixth minute to mark the little boy's age.

Fans from all sides in stadiums across the country clapped for the murdered six-year-old in an emotional tribute yesterday.




And today supporters clapped at the sixth minute of each game again – a minute for every year of Arthur's tragic life.

Leeds and Brentford supporters started their tribute today at 2pm while a picture of the young boy was projected on the screen.

The same happened at the Tottenham Hotspur game with Norwich as the screens showed a photo of the boy next to the words "You are loved."

Manchester United Crystal Palace fans also paid a touching tribute to Arthur at the sixth minute of their 2pm clash.

Earlier today Manchester United tweeted: "We invite our fans to join others across football honouring the memory of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes with applause in the sixth minute of today’s game.

"Rest in peace, Arthur. Our thoughts are with you and those who loved you."

Arthur, six, was brutally murdered by his stepmum Emma Tustin, 32, and dad Thomas Hughes, 29.

Hughes and Tustin waged a sick "campaign of cruelty" against Arthur in his tragic final months.

Little Arthur was segregated for 14 hours a day and forced to sleep on the floor in a brutal struggle that matched the “medical definition of child torture”.

He was also poisoned with so much salt he was too weak to even put up a fight against his torturers' horrific abuse.

On June 16 last year, Tustin repeatedly smashed the youngster's head against a hard surface causing him to collapse.

He died in hospital the next day from a "head trauma inflicted on him by an adult" consistent with being "vigorously shaken and his head banged repeatedly against a hard surface".

Arthur could be heard wailing in one 23-second recording "no one loves me" and "no one is going to feed me".

Video footage also showed Arthur hours before he died waking up on the living room floor.

Tustin, 32, was caged for life with a minimum of 29 years after being convicted of the boy's murder.

His "pitiless" dad Hughes was caged for 21 years after being found guilty of manslaughter.

Their "lenient" sentences are being referred to the Attorney General by Solihull MP Julian Knight.

The government has launched a major review into the circumstances leading up to Arthur's death to determine what improvements need to be made by the agencies that came into contact with him in the months before he died.
