Paul Duckworth was beaten to death in the street.

Two men were tried for his murder but acquitted due to lack of evidence.

He had got into an argument outside the Universal nightclub in Ashton in the early hours.

The fight then escalated into an all out street brawl.

A witness said that the men attacking Paul Duckworth were kicking his head like a football.

He was taken to Tameside Hospital but died a few hours later from a severe brain haemorrhage.

The police said, 'We believe there were a number of people on Stamford Street that night who knew exactly what happened to Paul, and who was responsible for his death, but never came forward'.
