A statement from the family said: “The family are devastated by the loss of Brian in such shocking circumstances. A wife has lost her husband, best friend and carer all in one go.

“Brian was a family man who adored his grandchildren and family, and had only this week been given the all clear following treatment for cancer.

Police seek witnesses after parking row death

Detective Chief Inspector Tim Redfearn is appealing for witnesses following the death of a pensioner, who was killed in a row over a disabled parking space.

The men were waiting in the disabled parking area at the time and got into a disagreement about parking.

We know they became involved in a disagreement which resulted in one man punching the other knocking him to the ground.

It would seem an argument over nothing has led to tragic and devastating consequences for both men and their families.
