A 21-year-old man has been jailed for 16 months for attacking another man in a brawl outside a Surrey pub which left the victim with brain injuries.

Scott Dunaway, of Brougham Place, Farnham, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm.

David Kenhard, 26, from Aldershot, Hampshire, was found unconscious at the scene of the attack, which began outside the Albion in Farnham in May.

Surrey police said Mr Kenhard had still not recovered from his injuries.

Guildford Crown Court heard he was with a large group of friends in the pub when there was a disagreement, which continued outside as they headed towards Farnham Park.

Mr Kenhard was found in St James's Avenue, around the corner from the pub in Hale Road, in the early hours of 23 May.

He was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting, south London, and spent many weeks in hospital. Doctors initially gave him a 5% chance of survival.

"This was an unprovoked and cowardly attack on a young man who was enjoying a night out and who has been severely affected by the actions of Dunaway," said Det Insp Fran Breslin, of Surrey Police.
