THREE men involved in a bloody pub fight have been jailed for a total of 13 years.

Anthony Seagar, 36, from Maidstone, was sentenced to nine years jail at Croydon Crown Court, last Friday for stabbing two men at the Bird in Hand pub, Bromley, last May.

Dean Bagnall, 44, of Faringdon Avenue, Bromley, and Bernard King, 48, of Beblets Close, Orpington, were each jailed for two years for violent disorder during the brawl which left five men with abdominal stab wounds.

But five men from Bromley and one from West Wickham were cleared of violent disorder.

Sentencing, Judge Waller said the fight was "pre-arranged" between two groups who maintained a "wall of silence" when confronted by police.

Detective Inspector Paul White from Bromley Police said: "This incident was particularly savage and would have been frightening for those people in the premises who, through no fault of their own, were caught up in it.

Paul Morgan, 32, of Lions Close, Mottingham, was arrested last Monday after failing to appear for trial.

He still faces charges of violent disorder and possessing a large kitchen knife.
