Joshua Middleton, aged 21, of Gwscwm Park, Burry Port, has received a nine year prison sentence after pleading guilty to committing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Middleton attacked the 32-year-old male victim outside the Gaol House licensed premises on Sunday, February 26.

This was an unprovoked attack that has left the victim with possibly life changing injuries. Through investigation we were able to piece the jigsaw together of what happened that night. The evidence was so compelling Middleton pleaded guilty. Dyfed-Powys Police hopes this offender being brought to justice demonstrates to the victim, his family and the community of Llanelli that Dyfed-Powys Police will not tolerate this kind of vicious behaviour and we will do everything in our power to ensure such offenders are brought to justice.
