Michael Jackson fans mark 10 years since his death

Michael Jackson fans say they are still mourning the King Of Pop a decade after his death.

The star was one of the most influential musicians ever thanks to his groundbreaking albums and revolutionary live performances.

He died aged 50 after suffering a heart attack.

He remains hugely popular, despite the release of HBO documentary Leaving Neverland earlier this year which featured interviews with two men who alleged they were abused by Jackson as children.

Jackson’s hit albums such as Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad are credited with transforming pop music.

Before his solo career, he achieved worldwide fame as as a child star as part of the Jackson 5 with his brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon.

On June 25 2009, Jackson was found dead at his luxury Neverland mansion in Los Angeles after an overdose of the sedative propofol.

His personal doctor Conrad Murray was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served less than two years of a four-year prison sentence.
