Shocking footage has emerged of a 16-year-old teen squaring up to his victim before delivering a killer blow.

The victim, a 47-year-old man, is seen stumbling around on the street before a group of youths approach and accuse him of being a drug addict.

Michael Rhodes tries to avoid trouble by holding his hands up and walking away from the confrontation but attacker Connor Stewart squares up to him and punches him in the face.

Mr Rhodes falls back and hits his head on the pavement, prompting the group of youngsters to run away, one of them shouting: “His head’s bleeding.”

Following the incident, which took place Blackpool, Mr Rhodes was taken to hospital with a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain.

He remained in hospital in a critical condition until his death three weeks later.
