A man who fatally stabbed a 30-year-old Polish man in Blackpool has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Daniel Sobisz, 35, of no fixed address, stabbed Marcin Pawlow in his hip, thigh and shoulder on Central Drive at about 01:30 GMT on 23 December.

Mr Pawlow was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital, where he died.

Sobisz was arrested in Leicester in January and initially charged with murder. The Crown accepted his guilty plea to manslaughter on Tuesday.

He will be sentenced in July.

Six Blackpool men - aged 31, 32, 33, 34, 45 and 52 - who were arrested on suspicion of murder were all earlier released without charge.
