Dean’s mum said: “You can clearly see by the video that the police have released, that Brandon ‘Coward’ Silence punched my son from behind.

“Dean couldn’t even see it coming, it killed him instantly because he hit him that hard and forcefully.

“What sort of coward hits someone from behind and leaves him on the floor, then walks away knowing the damage he had done?”

She said: “How is this not an intentional act of violence to cause harm?

“To all that defended Brandon by saying it was a pub fight, shame on all of you. My son and nephew were attacked by this coward, Brandon.

“As the judge said, he was willing to punch his own shadow that night which resulted in my son’s death, and affected our family lives forever.”

Judge Geraint Walters said in court: “It was not a warning slap but a forceful punch by a man skilled in punching who knew the kind of damage that you were capable of, should you choose to inflict it.”
