Police are trying to trace an attacker who felled a thirty eight year old man with a single punch in a Halifax nightclub. The man died from his injuries.

"We believe the man left the venue almost immediately afterwards, so he will probably not know the outcome of his actions.

That is why I am appealing for him and any other witnesses to this incident to come forward and help the police with their enquiries."

Detective Chief Inspector Nick Wallen, West Yorkshire Police
