Mrs Dyche said: "I am desperate. I just want to be able to find out what happened to my son.

"I have a right to attend the trial but I need support with getting to Worcester, accommodation and a guide to help me to and from the courthouse.

"I have tried contacting councils, charities, hotels and advocacy groups but nobody has been able to help me.

"I do not eat much and I am happy to pay, I just need a good-hearted person who can help me."

Carl Dyche, 51, of Kington, Herefordshire, died in Greenfields, Kington, Herefordshire, on December 2. 

Three men were charged with offences, two with murder, in connection with Mr Dyche's death.

"The way I am being treated as a blind pensioner is awful. I have been in contact with Victim Support, Social Subscriber, Sight Concern and more.

"Everyone just keeps saying they will get back to me and two weeks later I get calls saying that nobody can.

"I would even stay in a nursing home if I had to but everyone I speak to says that it would not be a possibility.

"As the case is open to be viewed by anyone, the seating in the public gallery is essentially first come first served and I deserve to be there to find out what happened to my boy."
