Citizen editor: One punch has changed two lives forever
WITH one punch, two lives have been changed forever.
For Samuel Evans it means a spell in prison. The other, Matthew Edmonds, has been left a tetraplegic.
It must have taken Mr Edmonds a great deal of courage to go to court to see his attacker sentenced.
No prison sentence would ever be enough to compensate for what has happened to him, but should Evans really be out in as little as 18 months?

He will now have a spell inside to think about what he has done.
EVERY child dreams of being able to run about with their friends.
Sadly, while many children take such a simple ability for granted, Jamie Parker can only hope to one day be able to walk – let alone run.
The six year old has cerebral palsy and has to spend much of his time in a wheelchair.
But one operation costing tens of thousands could change his future.
But he and his family need our help to pay for the surgery. He is not alone in needing this operation and until it can be funded on the NHS, these children need our help to raise the money.
IT seems the bargain hunters have given a big thumbs up to the new B&M store in Gloucester.
The shelves are packed full of goods and so were the aisles as curious customers checked out the new shop.
This is such a prime spot in the city and therefore it was vital to get it filled after M&S relocated.
It is great to see the store up and running.
