Aaron Heaney: Nine years for landlord wine glass attack

A man who smashed a wine glass into a pub landlord's face in Lancashire has been jailed for nine years.

Aaron Heaney, 21, of Woodlands View, Ansdell, denied assault causing grievous bodily harm, but was convicted last month at Preston Crown Court.

A landlord at the Ship and Royal pub on Clifton Street, Lytham, needed plastic surgery to repair nerve damage after the attack on 12 October.

Heaney was also ordered to pay a £120 victim surcharge.
