Three gang members who took part in a mob attack on a vulnerable man, fracturing his skull, have been given custodial sentences totalling almost 15 years.

Majid Ali, 20, Syed Amar Shah, 18, and 16-year-old Mubashaer Ali were among a group of yobs who hurled stones and bricks at Matthew Ellis.

Mr Ellis, 41, whom Bradford Crown Court heard had significant mental illness, needed brain surgery after he was hit on the head with a rock. He also suffered a fractured arm.

The court was told he had been on his way home after spending the day metal detecting when he was attacked on a path near to Frizinghall Community Centre in Bradford in April last year.

After being hit by the stones, Mr Ellis was then struck on the arm with his own metal detector by Shah.

A TEENAGER who was part of a gang which smashed up a Brierfield pub, has walked free from court.

Burnley Crown Court heard how the 17-year-old had been one of a group of Asian males who pushed their way into The Feathers, in Colne Road, about two hours after the English Defence League had turned up in the town. In the disturbance, the landlord and landlady were both assaulted and injured and damage was caused.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted affray and criminal damage, on July 2nd last year. The defendant, who had no previous convictions, was given a 12 month youth rehabilitation order, with 100 hours’ unpaid work by a judge, who slammed his behaviour as “pure stupidity.”

Miss Sarah Statham (prosecuting) said, just after 2pm, members of the English Defence League arrived in Brierfield town centre, which was very busy at the time.

A large group of Asian males then congregated on the main road outside the library. The landlord and landlady of the nearby Feathers pub were outside, watching what was going on. Around 4pm, 20 to 30 Asian males ran towards the pub and about 10 pushed their way inside. Nobody in the pub was connected with the EDL and it was relatively quiet.
