Martin was jailed for nine years and Quennell received an eight year sentence for GBH with intent and Lockett was jailed for 18 months and Hinton received two years for violent disorder.

They were all found guilty following a 15-day trial a Chelmsford Crown Court. Stuart, who pleaded guilty to GBH on the first day of trial, was jailed for three years.

“All five men played a part in a vicious and an unprovoked attack on a man who innocently bumped into his attackers while dancing during a night out with friends. Embarrassed and angry about being ejected from the venue, they waited for the victim to leave and then outnumbered him in an assault that has had a lasting impact on the victim, who now suffers black outs and memory loss. I would like to praise him for his courage throughout the investigation and trial after his attackers denied any involvement. They have not shown any remorse for their actions and will now face a lengthy period locked away in a prison cell.”

– DC Leo Fordham, Harlow CID
