SEVEN men have been convicted after a mass brawl at Butlins that led to a security guard being seriously hurt.

The men, who all pleaded guilty, had been staying at Butlins in Bognor when a disagreement between them led to them being thrown out of a nightclub at the resort.

A fight then broke out. During the fight security staff were assaulted and one received serious internal injuries during the incident on November 5, 2011.

The convicted were: Craigh Whittam, 28, of Brittannia Drive, Gravesend; Andrew Wood, 29, of Portland Avenue, Gravesend; Daniel Asbury, 28, of Marks Square, Northfleet; Scott Robinson, 29, of York Road, Northfleet; James Green, 35, of Stanley Crescent, Gravesend; Sam Hedges, 28, of Lime Avenue, Northfleet; Farai Mutepfa, 28, of Childs Crescent, Swanscombe.

Green was sentenced at Hove Crown Court to three years in prison for grievous bodily harm. Robinson was jailed for eight months for assault and affray. The others were given suspended prison sentences.
