The two young men were with groups of friends when they encountered each other at the nightclub.

Shortly before closing time, one of Mr Cresswell’s friends knocked one of Shaikh’s friends to the floor.

Mr Cresswell later separated from the group and was walking alone towards Bentine Lane when Shaikh knocked him unconscious, although he soon recovered.

The two groups met each other again in The Parade about 40 minutes later and began arguing, where Shaikh hit Mr Cresswell, this time fatally.
