A pub reveller from Wembley has been jailed for carrying out a brutal attack following a row over a game of pool.
Edward Egan was in The Torch pub in Bridge Road, Wembley, when he became embroiled in an argument with two men as they played pool.
When a 48-year-old man tried to intervene he was punched in the face by Egan so he left the pub.
However Egan followed him and hit him over the head causing him to fall to the ground before punching and kicking him.
Last month at Harrow Crown Court he admitted grievous bodily harm and assault.
