Dale Mclean, 25, from Huddersfield has been sentenced to five years and four months after throwing one punch which led to the death of Andrew Feather, 38, of Hipperholme.

Mclean pleaded guilty to Manslaughter at Bradford Crown Court following the fatal incident which occurred at Liquid Nightclub in Halifax this February.

DCI Nick Wallen of West Yorkshire Police's Protective Services (Crime) said: "Andrew Feather died as the result of one punch from Dale Mclean and that moment of madness has left a man dead and another man's life in ruins. This case highlights the dangers of losing your temper and punching somebody.

"A split second decision made in anger can have tragic consequences, ruining the lives of the people involved, their friends and families. If you find yourself in a situation where you are being provoked, our advice is to take a breath, turn and walk away."
