Two Newham thugs jailed after leaving victim unconscious

Two thugs who left a man unconscious in a brawl have been jailed.

Mogosan, 31, from Oxford, was left lying blooded and with a tooth missing.

He was rescued by a passing police patrol.

Susan Hulme, prosecuting, said the fight erupted after the accused shouted drunken abuse from a bench.
