Lincolnshire Police: One punch can kill

This story is over

Police officers have taken to the streets of Lincoln in a sobering appeal to people on a night out – “One punch can kill”.

As part of the appeal, a video was screened to members of the public in popular night time spots in the city centre, reminding them of the impact of violent behaviour.

The screen was hoped to grab people’s attention, and draws on real experiences.

Passers by were then asked about the effectiveness of the appeal and some shared their own stories.
