A Pinchbeck man who carried out a knife attack during an argument in public has been jailed for 12 years and four months.

James Ellis (23), of Bridgewater Lane, was sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court today (Monday) after he was found guilty of unlawfully and maliciously causing grievous bodily harm.

Ellis slashed the face of another man with a Stanley knife after he had gone to several night clubs in the town centre.

The victim was eventually treated in hospital while police eventually tracked Ellis down to an address in Manchester.

Ellis had been placed under an indefinite restraining order on June 26, preventing him from having any contact with the injured man and or going into any premises where he might be.
