A remorseful Worksop offender has apologised after he struck a man who died of natural causes just days later.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Monday how Joshua Blount had been at a get-together at a home on Holmefield Road, Whitwell, with others when he attacked 39-year-old Karl Pendleton and fled the property.

Prosecuting solicitor Michael Treharne explained Mr Pendleton, of Worksop, passed away four days later but a post mortem report confirmed he died of natural causes and the assault had not contributed to his death.
