Police believe the man who threw the punch will probably not know what happened to the victim.

Det Chf Insp Nick Wallen of West Yorkshire Police, said: “We believe this man left the venue almost immediately afterwards, so he will probably not know the outcome of his actions.

“That is why I am appealing for him and any other witnesses to this incident to come forward and help the police with their enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at Halifax on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
