Coma dad latest

A DAD left fighting for his life in a coma following a single punch was “improving”.

Iain Eldridge, 35, suffered a brain injury following an unprovoked attack just after midnight on New Year’s Day.

The Auckley father-of-two was “stable but improving” in Doncaster Royal Infirmary, a police spokesman confirmed.

Paul Oakden, 21, of Kingswood Close, Bawtry, has been charged with grievous bodily harm following the Bawtry attack and remanded in custody. A committal date has been planned for this month.
