Night club doorman jailed for attack.

A NIGHTCLUB doorman has been sentenced to five years in prison after ramming his walkie-talkie into a student's face so hard it caused his eyeball to explode.

Martin White, 26, of Thornbury, South Gloucestershire, drove the walkie- talkie into the eye of the law student who had fallen asleep in a club celebrating the end of his exams.

Sentencing White, Judge Stewart Patterson described the "unprovoked" attack on law student David Lowe as ferocious.

Sentencing White to five years in prison at Bristol Crown Court, Judge Patterson said the attack "sickened" those who witnessed it and described the consequences as "appalling".

Mr Lowe, 25, of Clifton, Bristol, needed eye surgery and was left blind in his left eye.
