The trial of a man accused of manslaughter after a man died following an incident outside a nightclub in Lancaster last year has begun.
Sean Orrell, 32, from Wigan Road in Leigh, is accused of unlawfully killing Joshua Hughes during an incident outside the former Glow Rooms nightclub.
Police were called at shortly before 4.30am on Sunday June 12, 2022 to a report that a man had been punched during an altercation at Dalton Square, causing him to fall and hit his head on the ground.
Mr Hughes, 22, who was part of a group who had been inside the club earlier, was taken to hospital in a critical condition.
Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, Mr Hughes, of Morecambe, died on the morning of June 16.
The trial is taking place at Preston Crown Court.
