Man jailed after starting fight at Barking pub
A man who started fighting with customers at a pub in Barking has been jailed for a year.
Anthony Manton walked into the Barking Arms in Station Parade and started a fight with a man inside the pub on November 25 2011.
When he was pushed out of the pub the 26-year-old painter began fighting with other members of the public.
Twenty people later came forward to speak to police about his behaviour, which was captured on CCTV.
Manton, of Cheshunts, Basildon, initially entered a plea of not guilty to affray, but changed his plea to guilty during proceedings at Snaresbrook Court on September 11.
