Man Jailed Over Attack Outside A Bar
A man's been jailed for five years and four months after stamping repeatedly on another man's head outside a bar in South Shields.

He pleaded guilty to causing grevious bodily harm with intent.
The 28-year-old victim spent a week in hospital with a broken nose, broken jaw and brain swelling. He had to have a metal plate fitted to his jaw and was left with memory problems.
