The incident took place in the early hours of Wednesday 27 August 2014 on Sewerby Road in Bridlington.

In relation to the same day, 23-year-old Daniel Andrew Londesborough was given a three year prison sentence for violent disorder while Anthony White, 32, was given a three-and-a-half year term for the same offence.

After sentencing, Humberside Police Detective Chief Inspector Wendy North said: “The violence and behaviour of those involved in this incident was appalling, causing disturbance to local residents and ending with the most severe consequences.

“Graham White lost his life during the disorder, and Andrew Londesborough who also suffered serious injuries, later took his own life. Three people are now serving custodial sentences.

“This case highlights the dangers of alcohol fuelled violence and should serve as a warning of the devastation that can occur when petty disputes escalate beyond all proportions.

“Humberside Police is committed to protecting our communities from violence, we will investigate and bring to justice offenders who take to the streets with weapons and use violence.

“Our thoughts are with the families who have suffered loss as a result of this incident.”
