More than a hundred and fifty people have taken part in a charity run in Lancashire, renamed in honour of a murdered father of two. Phillip Sherriff was killed after being bottled at a corporate work party in London last year.
The Scorton Bikes and Barrows 10k which was formed as part of the annual festival has been renamed the Sherriff 10k. Phil's widow Jane has since campaigned to ban glass bottles from late night pubs and clubs. All the money raised from today's run will go towards the Bottle Stop Campaign.
"Philip Sherriff died horrifically in a way that is almost too ghastly to describe.
"The moment Charles severed his artery, Philip had no chance of surviving.
"Since that moment, Charles has shown incredible remorse, but sadly not for Philip Sherriff, only for himself.
"I hope his conviction will bring some sense of justice to the family who have been devastated by Philip's murder. He truly was a decent, hard-working family man who in no way contributed to his own demise.
"This case highlights that one single second of aggression has fatal consequences for some and a life-changing impact on so many."
– Detective Inspector Richard Beadle
He appealed to people to remember Mr Sherriff and "walk away" if tensions build up at a bar.
