Harry Coleborn, 21, of Elson Lane, in Gosport, was jailed for GBH at Portsmouth Crown Court after he hit a man over the head with an empty pint glass in a street attack.

The man with Coleborn pushed the victim's friend from behind and was given a conditional caution.

Hampshire police said the victim, 33, needed stitches for a cut above his eye.

Detective Inspector Abbie Leeson said: ‘This was a serious and unprovoked attack with a weapon which left a man with a broken nose.

‘We hope this investigation and sentence provides some reassurance that offences like this one won’t be tolerated.’
