Kieron Hayden jailed for drunken Norwich street attack

A man has been jailed for a drunken street attack which left his victim with life-changing injuries.

Kieron Hayden, from Epsom in Surrey, hit 20-year-old James Harrison repeatedly with a length of wood picked out of a bin on Prince of Wales Road in Norwich.

The attack, caught on CCTV, was described by Judge Peter Jacobs as "yet another example of completely mindless violence".

Mr Harrison's family said he has been left facially scarred, permanently deaf in one ear and partially blind.
