At the closing press conference for TFWA World Exhibition 2011, association President Erik Juul-Mortensen rightly began by expressing his deep sorrow at the death of a delegate last Sunday night following a street brawl.
The 37-year-old was named by Cannes police as Lee Elton Fischer from London. He fell badly on the pavement after being punched following a dispute with local men.
