Wesley Clutterbuck

A man who killed a Royal marine with a single punch, on a night out in Rochdale, will be sentenced today.

Reece Kay admitted the manslaughter of 19 year old Wesley Clutterbuck earlier this month.

The teenager from Whitworth died after suffering serious head injuries in the town centre. Emergency crews were called to Fleece Street following reports of an assault but doctors were unable to save him.

His family said achieved his dream of joining the elite troops last year and they were 'so proud' of him.
