THE CCTV footage is shocking.

Andrew Young’s mother gasped when she saw it for the first time in court and that will be, undoubtedly, the reaction of most people who watch it.

The simple brutality of the single punch which ended a life in a second is captured here. And unfortunately it is not an uncommon occurrence.

Andrew Young joins a growing list of people who have died in this way, including Clive Wilcox, Jason Peers and Nathan Ridler. The video should serve as a stark message about the consequences of such violence.

One punch is enough to kill.
