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.

O’Boyle and Lane were both convicted of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and jailed for seven years.

Quinn was sentenced to 21 months for actual bodily harm. All three had admitted the charges at a hearing last month.
