    BBC Local Live

    A man has been jailed for killing a man with a single punch during a fight in Chesterfield town centre.

    Chris Henchcliffe, 26, died in hospital nine days after suffering head injuries when he was hit by Ben Edwards in Corporation Street in July.

    Edwards, 22, of Fieldview Place, Chesterfield, denied manslaughter but was found guilty by a jury and sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison.

    Ben Edwards

    Det Ch Insp Greg McGill, who led the investigation, said: "This case is a tragic example of how one flash of violence can cause such pain, loss and devastation, and should send a stark message about the serious consequences of violence.

    “Chris was just on a night out with friends, and never came home because of that incident.

    “No argument is worth taking a life for, and as the impact on Chris’ family and the sentence that Ben Edwards has received show, the devastation caused by just one punch can be far-reaching.”
