The family of a Rushden man who died after being assaulted over a £10 debt have paid tribute to him after a man was convicted of his manslaughter.
Phillip Brown, aged 51, known as Podge, died on December 5, 2018, after being injured in an assault by Gurprit Singh Bains, aged 42, on November 12 that year.
After Bains was today, November 18, found guilty of causing Mr Brown’s death, his devastated family have issued the following tribute via Northamptonshire Police.
“Podge was a much-loved brother, uncle, father and grandfather and had many friends in the local community.
“Despite all of the difficulties and loss in his own life, he could always manage to have a laugh and make people smile. He is truly missed by all and his life was taken far too soon.
“Thankfully for us, justice has prevailed and we can at last start to grieve and heal with more positive memories of him.”
