Mr Humby was assisted by staff and customers in the Gordon Arms. He was taken to Southampton General Hospital where he received treatment for a lacerated vein and artery

Miah admitted wounding with intent, possessing a bladed article and being concerned in an offer to supply heroin, and was jailed for six years.
