THE widow of a man who died after he was slashed with a broken bottle has handed a petition into Downing Street calling for the use of plastic bottles.
Phillip Sherriff, 37, from Scorton, near Garstang, was at a London nightclub in April when Ashley Charles, 26, attacked him with a glass bottle.
Charles, from Leicester, was given a life sentence for the murder.
Mr Sherriff’s widow, Jane, has gathered 119,000 names on a petition which aims to get glass bottles banned from late-night venues.
Mrs Sherriff said: “Three months into my grief I thought ‘I have to turn this around. I have to make something good come out of Phil’s death’.
“I’m not asking for a blanket ban in a hotel or a restaurant, I’m looking at specific venues where you know problems are going to happen.”
She added that support for her Facebook campaign, Bottle Stop, had been “overwhelming”.
Mr Sherriff, a father-of-two, was attacked at Pulse in Southwark in April, during an event which included a live performance by singer Jessie J. CCTV showed Charles grabbing the bottle and plunging it into Sherriff’s neck.
Charles will serve at least 14 years in prison for the killing.
