Dean Haverley death: Man jailed for 'single punch' killing
A man has been jailed for eight years for killing a father-of-six with a "single punch".
Dean Haverley, 48, died in hospital following the attack last August at The George Pub in the High Street, Burnham.
Anthony Gardener, 62, of Burlington Road, Burnham, Buckinghamshire, was found guilty of manslaughter at Reading Crown Court.
Mr Haverley's family said they were devastated by his death and he would "never ever be forgotten".
Det Insp Stuart Blaik, of Thames Valley Police, said: "The jury has concluded today that the single punch thrown by Anthony Gardener was not in self-defence as he claimed but was an unlawful act which caused the death of Dean Haverley."
"The CCTV clearly shows that this was not an act of self-defence but an act of cowardly violence which has resulted in Dean's death," he added.
In a statement, Mr Haverley's family said: "With Dean's untimely and unnecessary demise came a dark cloud that cannot ever be lifted.
"Dean was a genuinely lovely husband, a loving father, brother, son, and friend to everyone. He will be missed by all.
"His memory will always live on in his children, and he will never ever be forgotten."
