Two men have admitted assaulting four college students during a late-night town centre brawl.

Both admitted wounding Dominic Sutton without intent to cause grievous bodily harm in Duddery Road, Haverhill, at about 4.37am on August 5, 2018.

Pearson also admitted causing a second man, Tom Sayer, actual bodily harm, as well as assaulting a third man, Joshua Dear, by punching both men in the face.

Meanwhile, Robinson admitted causing a fourth man, Henri Pittham, actual bodily harm by punching him in the face.

Pearson was remanded in custody and Robinson was released on bail until a sentencing hearing on Friday.

A third defendant, Harry Shakespeare, 31, of Somerset Court, Haverhill, also appeared at court to deny wounding Mr Sutton without intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
