A killer has been jailed after a brutal pub attack was filmed by a witness wearing futuristic glasses with an integrated camera.

In what is thought to be a legal first, footage from the pair of £7 spectacles was used by prosecutors to build a case against James Collinson after an attack in a pub in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

Collinson, 38, knocked 59-year-old John Glenn to the floor with a single punch from which he never regained consciousness. Mr Glenn died nearly a month later.

Collinson was jailed for six years at Leeds Crown Court on Friday after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The attack, on September 1 last year in the Golden Last pub, was seen by a witness wearing camera-glasses, similar to those pioneered by Google. He later spoke to police, who downloaded the footage.
