Street attack victim is dead

Have your say

A MAN has lost his fight for life after he was attacked in a town-centre street.

Richard Reynolds, 42, was left critically ill following the night-time assault in Wharf Street, Sowerby Bridge, on May 13.

He was rushed to Leeds Infirmary with head injuries but died yesterday.

Mr Reynolds, of Sowerby Bridge, was a self-employed tree surgeon and former paratrooper.

Daniel Duckworth, 35, of West Street, Sowerby Bridge, appeared in court this week charged with wounding with intent following the incident. He was remanded in custody until June 28.
