The girlfriend of Robert Hart killed at the Parklife Music Festival six months ago has issued a fresh appeal to find his killer.
Gemma Parry, who was with him when he was attacked says she can't bear to think of his killer enjoying Christmas.
Here's Gemma's statement in full.
"As Christmas Day creeps closer, the more I am reminded of what is missing in my life.
Every Christmas advert, every celebration I see, deepens the sense of loss and heartache that Bobby's death has caused.
It is absolutely heart-breaking to imagine what Christmas will be like without Bobby, a time which should be filled with his beaming smile, jokes, laughter, warmth and love.
He was my northern star and at Christmas, as with the rest of the year, his presence in the midst of the fun and celebration will be sorely missed.
That is also true of New Year, a night when we should be celebrating and raising a glass to our bright, exciting future together.
What really hurts is the fact that the man who attacked my beautiful, kind and selfless partner, the man who took his future away, will get to enjoy his Christmas and New Year with loved ones and friends.
Could he possibly have a conscience? I cannot imagine that he does.
This Christmas, Bobby won't get to enjoy himself and smile. And neither will I."
Detectives say they are just one frame away from indentifying Robert Hart's killer at the Parklife music festival.
It's six months since the 26-year-old from Macclesfield was punched to the ground near the main stage.
Granada Reports has been given exclusive access to the police incident room.
Officers say film footage from the phone of a Granada Reports viewer has helped pin point where the attack took place.
