A takeaway worker who led a gang attack which left a teenager with a fractured eye socket has been jailed for two years.
Ali Haydor, 22, punched Daniel Stringer-Prince, 17, at least twice before a gang of youths continued the assault, repeatedly kicking and punching the victim in the head.
Student Daniel and a friend were attacked by a group of Asian youths who had been involved in a snowball fight with a group of white teenagers.
Detective Inspector Dave Moores said of the attack: ‘What started off as quite a trivial matter of people throwing snowballs, was escalated much further by others including Haydor, who subjected one of the victims to a wholly undeserved and violent attack.
‘This man has now been left with lasting injuries, including damage to his sight in one eye, but the consequences of this assault could have been far worse.
