A man has been jailed for two years after he admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm during a baseball bat attack in Market Square at Holyhead.

Mold crown court heard Barry Davies had a slight bleed on the brain, cut lip and bruising.

Scott Queen, aged 46, of Market Square, Holyhead, was told by Judge Timothy Petts: "You clearly had a desire to confront Mr Davies in Holyhead town centre.

"You were challenging him and pushing him.”

There was a history between the men and Queen told police "I won" when cautioned.

A 20 weeks suspended jail term was also activated on top of the two-year term for last month’s attack. A three-year criminal behaviour order was made.

Prosecuting barrister Simon Parry said police found the victim dazed and bloodied. Mr Davies had been arrested the previous day for an alleged assault on Queen, counsel added.

CCTV footage was shown to the court.

Andrew Green, defending, said Queen had become an alcoholic but he now wished to find work. “There’s a backdrop of antipathy between these two men,” the barrister remarked.
