Neil Bradford's report from the ITV Anglia lunchtime bulletin.
Ravi Sandhu, aged 24, of Kathie Road, Bedford, has been found guilty by ajury at Luton Crown Court of the manslaughter of Kevin Harrison.
He punched Mr Harrison, from Raunds, in September last year in an unprovoked attack in Bedford town centre after a night out. The injuries caused as Mr Harrison’s head hit the pavement were fatal.
Outside court Kevin's widow Patricia said of her husband: "Kevin was my best friend, he meant the world to me and still lives on in my memory. He was the most caring person I have ever known. He was hard working and he loved his family dearly. We are totally lost without him."
