A man from Chelmsford has been jailed for more than six years for an attack in a pub that left another man with a fractured skull.

Lloyd Kenlen

27 year-old Lloyd Kenlen, from The Green, attacked the 34 year-old victim with a pool cue at the Red Beret in the city on 6 July, 2015.

He followed him out of the pub on Melbourne Avenue, hit him from behind, and then punched and kicked him to the ground.

Kenlen was later arrested in Baddow and charged with GBH.

He initially pleaded not guilty but then admitted the charge at the start of his trial.

He was then sentenced to six years and eight months as well as being ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £120.

Investigating Officer Dc Martin Amundsen said: "Kenlen launched an unprovoked attack on an innocent pub goer while under the influence of alcohol.

"He is a dangerous and violent man and I am pleased to see he has been taken off the streets of Essex for a considerable length of time".
