Man sentenced over attack in Carlisle pub

A 24-year-old man attacked another man in a pub after getting drunk on his third night out in a year.

Benjamin Allan, of Dene Crescent, Belah, told Carlisle magistrates’ court that he had only been out twice before and was normally quiet and not violent.

He said he was drunk and apologised for the incident.

The court heard how he hit Cameron Martin on the back of the head in Walkabout, on Botchergate, on June 9.

Mr Martin was taken to hospital and suffered a sore head for some time afterwards.

Allan, who admitted common assault, was fined £115 and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £15 victim surcharge. He was also ordered to pay £50 compensation to Mr Martin.
