The body of Mark Denton, once ranked among the top middleweights in England, was carried from the party in front of shocked bystanders.

His death from an “axe blow to the head” came as emergency crews dealt with a wave of booze-related incidents across the country.

But the death of Mark was by far the worst of the bloody violence.

His brother Craig, who shared his love of boxing, said: “We can’t believe it. He was just a great lad and to lose him like this is shocking.”

Bobby Gill, 35, said Mark was attacked as he arrived at the party in his native Hartlepool, Cleveland.
