A REVELLER was attacked by two men in a bar – and had a bottle and a bar stool thrown at him.

Burnley Crown Court heard how Richard Wright had been drinking with friends when he was set upon by Burnley thug George Wray.

CCTV footage showed how Mr Wright was punched by Wray’s co-defendant Mcauley Worth as he was fleeing into another room.

Prosecuting, David Clarke said both men continued to throw punches at Mr Wright before Wray picked up a bottle and threw it at his victim. The weapon cut Mr Wright just above the collar bone. He also chipped a tooth during the attack.

Worth, 22, of Harold Avenue, Burnley, also threw a bar stool during the attack but it missed Mr Wright.

The court heard the incident happened at Ma Kelly’s Bar in Fleetwood at around 11.30pm in May last year.

When Wray, 19, of Scott Park Road, Burnley, and Worth were arrested by police they denied having been in the bar on the night of the attack.

They continued to deny their guilt when they appeared at Lancashire Magistrates Court charged with assault occasioning actually bodily harm.

But they both pleaded guilty to the charge when they were shown clear CCTV footage of the attack.

Mr Clarke said: “This was a sustained assault which stretched from the bar area into a different room and then into a further room, More than one weapon was used and within the context of an assault occasioning actual bodily harm the court might take the view this is a serious offence of its type.”

The court heard how Worth was jailed for four months at Bolton Crown Court for his role in a mass brawl involving inmates at Hindley Prison in May 2016. The court heard that incident involved a violent confrontation on F wing of the Bickershaw jail between Liverpool and Manchester gangs.

And Wray was sentenced to 27 months in a young offenders institution in January for throwing a bottle at a man during a street robbery over 40 in Burnley.

Defending Worth, Mark Stuart said: “My client throws one punch that lands. He may have thrown another couple that don’t land.

"I accept he he is chasing after the victim. He is not seen to pick up anything that caused any incident to the complainant.”

Defending Wray, Philip Holden said his client was already serving a custodial sentence for the robbery and pleaded with the court to show him mercy.

Mr Holden said: “This is an unpleasant incident but you have a defendant here who is already being punished for another offence.”

Recorder Mukhtar Hussain QC sent both men to custody for 19 months.
