Huddersfield shop reopens after owner's death

The family of a shopkeeper who died after an attack at his Huddersfield store have reopened the business.

Gurmail Singh, 63, died from head injuries he suffered at the shop in Cowcliffe on 20 February. Five men have been charged with his murder.

The shop has been closed since but has now undergone a total refit and was reopened to the community earlier.

His sister Darshan Kaur said: "He didn't do any harm to anybody... He was one in a million."

Mr Singh came to the UK in 1963 and had run the convenience store for about six years.

He left a wife, two adult sons and a daughter and celebrated his 63rd birthday the day before he died.

Many people in the community described how he worked long hours and would go out of his way to help customers.
