Three men have been jailed for a brutal armed attack that almost killed a customer in a Neasden pub.
Martin O’Boyle, 44, of Selsdon Road, Neasden, and Darren Lane, 40, from Watford, and a fourth man attacked their victim after entering Sals Bar through a back door.
Harrow Crown Court heard how the 41-year-old had his throat slashed with a knife and was hit with a claw hammer and a baseball bat during the targeted attack on December 2011.
The victim was left fighting for his life after sustaining a 10-inch cut across his throat.
Michael Quinn, 40, of North Circular Road, Neasden, who had been sitting next to the victim, pointed him out to the pair.
