Assault Victim Vows to Continue His Recovery From Brutal Attack


(KentOnline) – A young man left unable to walk or talk after being attacked on a night out almost two years ago is still trying to get his life back on track.

Joe Shaw was 24 when he came home from Australia to visit his family in Ramsgate and was set upon by thug Liam Bayliss while out with friends.

Bayliss, who had a problem with alcohol, went out looking for a fight and tried to start one with several groups of men and a girl who refused to dance with him before eventually coming to blows with Joe.

The thug knocked him out at Rokka Bar in Ramsgate and was described by a judge as “the very worst of this blight on British town centres at throwing out time” as he jailed him for four years and three months. CONTINUE
