have been ush­er­ing him out of the shop in Black­pool in the early hours of May 5 when Glenny turned around and swung a punch.

Glenny was yes­ter­day jailed at Pre­ston Crown Court for three years and four months af­ter ad­mit­ting man­slaugh­ter.

The court heard Glenny hit an­other man mo­ments later out­side the Chicken Ex­press take­away in Caunce Street.

His sec­ond vic­tim, Daniel Rourke, was part of a group who were at­tempt­ing to snap Glenny on their mo­bile phone cam­eras af­ter he the at­tack on Guest-Binns.

Glenny was given an ex­tra two months in prison for the com­mon as­sault of Rourke.

The de­fen­dant, of Clin­ton Av­enue, handed him­self into po­lice the same day and con­fessed to his crimes.

Co­caine

He ad­mit­ted he had drank “quite a lot of lager”, spir­its and had taken co­caine.

Joseph All­man, pros­e­cut­ing, said Glenny told po­lice: “I have ru­ined my life and some fam­ily over one punch.

“A few words have been ex­changed and it’s just Black­pool, Fri­day night.” Julie Tay­lor, de­fend­ing, sub­mit­ted tes­ti­mo­ni­als from Glenny’s fam­ily, friends and his em­ployer.

She said: “They all have a com­mon theme which is un­der­lin­ing his good char­ac­ter and their dis­be­lief that this could have hap­pened.

“He is a young man wracked with guilt. He plays over the early hours of May 5 over and over again and wishes he could turn back time.”

Pass­ing sen­tence, Judge Pamela Badley said: “I want to stress that no sen­tence can re­flect the loss of life.”
