A TEENAGER who ‘ran amok’ with a knife in a busy Corfe Mullen pub has been jailed for 18 months.

A customer at the Dorset Soldier pub had to force George Nethercott, of Springdale Road in Corfe Mullen out of the building with a chair.

His actions frightened elderly customers who were having a meal at the time of the affray in February 2009, Judge John Harrow said.

Sentencing Nethercott, now 18, Judge Harrow described it as a ‘very serious incident’ and said the teen had run amok.
