Family of lorry driver Peter Burns tell of anguish as Daniel Mullaney, of Allerton, is locked up

POLICE have pledged to investigate any new lines of inquiry into the ‘senseless’ death of a Bradford grandfather after a judge stated that the attacker who delivered the fatal blow was still at large.
Daniel Mullaney, 29, was yesterday jailed for 32 months for felling Peter Burns with a single punch that broke his jaw in two places.
Mullaney, of Lampards Close, Allerton, Bradford, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm on Mr Burns, 54, after the manslaughter charge against him was dropped.


He was caught on CCTV in a taxi that night saying: “So I just banged him and he went to sleep.”
But Bradford Crown Court heard that someone else then hit or kicked Mr Burns, fracturing his skull as he lay unconscious on the ground.
Although the case against Mullaney at first looked like “a classic one punch manslaughter,” several pathologists agreed that his single blow was very unlikely to have caused the fatal bleeding on Mr Burns’ brain.
Mr Burns died in Leeds General Infirmary three days after he was attacked in the car park of the Queen Hotel in Thornton Road, Fairweather Green, Bradford, on May 28.
He had been attending a private birthday party there for up to 70 guests.
