A fund-raising page has been set up to help the family of father who died after an alleged attack in Blyth.

Jason Glancey, 45, of The Oval, Blyth, died at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary in the early hours of Wednesday, May 17.

He had been taken to hospital with serious head injuries following an alleged altercation outside Deja Vu nightclub in the early hours of Sunday, April 30.

Now, friends of Mr Glancey have set up a fund-raising page to support his family.

Emma Sim-Dobson wrote: “RIP Jason.

“I’m trying to help Jason’s mam June and his son Jack to a little break away or to help her towards the funeral after all they have gone through in the last few weeks.

“Jason, aka Hank, was 45-years-old, a lovely lad to know and would do anything for anyone.”
