The family of a Birmingham man who died outside a bar in Manchester are calling on the community and public to support them in a fight for their son's justice.
Neville and Sonia Webster have won the right to challenge a decision by the Crown Prosecution Service not to prosecute anyone for their son Julian's death.
He died in April 2009 after he was restrained by doormen at a Pitcher and Piano bar.
The Crown Prosecution Service have said it would be inappropriate to comment on the decision by a High Court Judge to grant permission for a judicial review into their decision not to prosecute anyone over the death of a Birmingham man in Manchester.

The family of a Birmingham man, who died outside a bar in Manchester in April 2009, have won the right to challenge the decision made by the Crown Prosecution Service not to prosecute anyone over his death.
Julian Webster died after he was restrained outside the Pitcher and Piano bar, when he tried to get back inside to find his phone.
An inquest jury found the 24-year-old had been restrained around the neck area for eight minutes, and that the effect of this restraint contributed to his death.
The CPS in Manchester did not prosecute anyone following the inquest. But the family, who claim the doormen who restrained Webster played a role in his death, have been granted permission by a High Court Judge to challenge that decision.
A spokesman for the family said they are very pleased with the latest development.
A hearing will take place at a later date.
