Midland pub death victim named as man is charged with manslaughter

A man has today been charged with manslaughter after the death of a father injured at a pub in the Midlands on Friday night, as the victim was named as 27-year-old Jonathon Woodhall.

Mr Woodhall, from Tamworth, was injured at The Deer's Leap pub in Streetly on Good Friday. He died in hospital last night.

In a statement his family said: "Known to family and friends as Paddy, he was a happy, loyal, lovable and caring man - a fantastic dad, who doted on his son."

Adam Lynn, 24, of Kingstanding Road, has been remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court tomorrow.

Two other men have been released on police bail pending further inquiries, whilst a 22-year-old man, who was also arrested, will face no further action.

Witnesses who have not yet spoken to police should call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
