A SECOND man involved in a fracas at the Plough and Harrow pub in Littleport - that involved the landlord being hit over the head with a glass and a customer being punched to the ground - has admitted assault.
Last week 21-year-old football coach Mark Hammond admitted causing grievous bodily harm to landlord David Bottomley.
And on Thursday, Hammond's father-in-law Andrew Billimore was in court, and admitted assaulting Adam Fendick during the same incident.
Billimore - currently awaiting sentence at Cambridge Crown Court after admitting that he grew more than 80 cannabis plants at his Little Downham home - punched his victim, causing him to fall to the floor, Ely magistrates were told.

"When he returned inside, he heard arguing in the bar area. Billimore's son-in-law was arguing with the landlord, and there was some pushing and shoving," she said.
"Billimore encouraged his son-in-law to leave, but the younger man continued his abusive behaviour, and hit the landlord with a glass.
When told there was no point in causing trouble, Billimore told Mr Fendick: "I am going to knock your glasses off your face."
As Mr Fendick reached to pick up his drink, he was punched in the face by Billimore.
Billimore, 43, of Lawn Lane, Little Dowham, told the court: "I would like to apologise to the court for my actions that night. "I am old enough to know better."
The court adjourned sentencing for four weeks and banned Billimore from the Plough and Harrow as a condition of his bail.
