A doorman has been jailed for 18 months for a violent, unprovoked attack on a man in Weymouth, Dorset.

Dane Brewer was working as a member of security staff at Actor’s Bar. He pushed the victim, a 52-year-old local man through the doorway of the bar causing him to fall backwards and onto the floor.

The victim was knocked unconscious in the attack and remained lifeless on the floor. He did not regain consciousness and was taken to hospital and placed in a medically-induced coma. Doctors found he had sustained a fractured skull and bleeding to the brain. He is still recovering from his injuries.

Traders count the cost of low attendance at America's Cup

After months of planning and anticipation, yesterday's dreadful weather may have scuppered the sailing - but the America's Cup World Series was far from a washout - according to organisers.

Plans are already underway to bring the sailing spectacular back to Portsmouth next year - with Ben Ainslie saying that Saturday's racing in front of the home crowd was the most amazing day of his sailing career.

However, organisers are counting the cost of the event - with only HALF the expected 500,000 spectators attending. Seafront attractions, and traders who paid to be on the seafront, say they lost out. Richard Jones reports.
