The man who captured TV football pundit Jamie Carragher spitting at his teenage daughter fears for his family’s safety after being sent death threats.
Andy Hughes, from Colwyn Bay , said he feels “under siege” from fans of the Liverpool legend and is begging the vile trolls to stop the abuse for the sake of his family.
Carragher was filmed spitting at Mr Hughes’ car with the spittle hitting his 14-year-old daughter, who was sat in the passenger seat, in the face.
The ex-footballer has apologised multiple time for his actions, both publicly and privately, and has been suspended from his job on Sky TV.
Mr Hughes, 42, has pleaded with the broadcaster not to axe him – and revealed he suffered attacks on social media after his name was published online yesterday.
He has decided to go public and appeal through The Mirror for the abuse to end.
“We have been feeling under siege. It has been really worrying. I have received threats, death threats and all kinds of abuse, and I don’t know how to deal with it. I worry for my daughter’s safety, I really do.” Mr Hughes said.
