Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith 'punched wife during drunken row'

The taxi driver, Daniel Shepherd, told police that he saw Julie-Ann, 47, slap her husband in the face before Goldsmith delivered a "left hook" to knock her down to the pavement.

Gary Goldsmith, 52, admitted using a closed fist to hit Julie-Ann Goldsmith, who fell to the ground and was left semi-conscious outside their central London home in the early hours of Oct 13.
