A Looe man has been jailed for three years over the pub brawl that left another drinker blind in one eye.

27 year old Jake Bellamy, real name Jacob Bellamy, from West Hill was convicted of malicious wounding after he chucked a glass during a fight last April.

Daniel Phillips had surgery and more than forty stitches after getting caught in the crossfire but doctors could not save the sight in his right eye.

Truro Crown Court heard he had to have more than forty stitches after being hit by the pint glass, thrown at someone else.

Bellamy told the jury he had drunk seven or eight pints that night, less than normal. He had been involved in a scuffle but said he had not grabbed a glass and thrown it at anyone. He insisted he had not been angry and had no intention of causing any injury to anyone.

A jury unanimously convicted him of unlawful and malicious wounding but acquitted him of the more serious charge of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

Judge Graham Cottle told Bellamy: "You were obviously under the influence of drink. You became involved in a scuffle and you picked up the glass and threw it from very close range at Ryan Powell. He ducked and avoided it with the result it struck 20 year old Daniel Phillips, shattering in his right eye. He has suffered consequences that are literally life changing. You bear the responsibility for that."
