A MAN who had his head stamped on, and was punched during a "mob handed" attack in Soham, has been awarded �200 in compensation.
Gary Smith was pinned up against a fence and punched in the head by Nicholas Loades, Ely magistrates were told.
Jamie Wilson then stood on Mr Smith's head while he was on the ground.
Both Loades, 31, of Carter Street, Fordham; and Wilson, 30, of Fordham Rod, Soham, admitted assaulting Mr Smith on December 13.
