A 36 year-old man has been jailed for two years for assaulting a pensioner in Tunbridge Wells in a road rage attack.

Brian Deacon, of Westwood Road, East Peckham, was riding his motorcycle when a 4x4 vehicle pulled out in front of him, causing him to brake hard.

He chased the vehicle, sounding his horn and flashing his lights, before pulling in front of the 4x4 and causing the driver to stop.

Deacon approached the vehicle and snatched the 76 year-old victim’s walking stick, snapped it and assaulted him with it.
