A Leeds man has been ordered to pay thousands of pounds in compensation to a pub doorman after he broke his nose and fractured his eye socket.

Darren Vickers punched the victim at Union Bank on Westgate in Wakefield city centre on Boxing Day last year.

Leeds Crown Court was shown CCTV footage of the attack that happened after the 30-year-old had been ejected from the premises along with others.

As the doorman was ejecting another man from the premises, Vickers approached him and punched him to the face.

The doorman suffered a broken nose and a fractured eye socket. One of his teeth fell out the day after the incident.

The victim did not require surgery but had to attend at least 14 hospital appointments after the incident.

He has been unable to work as a doorman since and has struggled to find other employment.

Vickers, of Thirlmere Gardens, Beeston, Leeds, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm. He has no previous convictions.

ichard Canning, mitigating, said his client was suicidal when he committed the offence as his relationship breakdown the year before meant he was unable to see his young son.

The barrister said Vickers had lost his well-paid job running a bank after his former partner sent the CCTV footage of the attack to his employer.

He said the defendant is now working on the tills at Sports Direct.

Vickers was given a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, and ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work and a 15-day rehabilitation activity requirement.

He was also ordered to pay £3,000 compensation to the victim.

Sentencing, Judge Simon Phillips QC said: “This was an entirely unprovoked attack on him and it was clear that there was some degree of premeditation on your behalf.”
