Shane Bower died after suffering serious injuries in Bethlehem Street, Grimsby

Shane Bower died as the result of a single punch in Bethlehem Street in the town in the early hours of Tuesday 17 February 2015.

Charles Westwood, aged 48, of Princes Road, Cleethorpes pleaded guilty at Hull Crown Court to manslaughter. He was sentenced to four years in prisons.

"The sentence handed to Charles Westwood should act as a deterrent to others. There is no doubt that alcohol was an aggravating factor in this incident fuelling a violent outburst with tragic consequences, destroying the lives of those involved and their families.

Humberside Police are committed to tackling violent crime and will continue our efforts to reduce the numbers of victims. However we also need people to play their part by thinking about their actions before they get involved in a dispute which can turn to violence.”

– Detective Chief Inspector Phil Gadd, Humberside Police
