A man is due to appear in court after a victim sustained facial injuries in a pub fight.

Ben Huntley, 40, of Warden Road, Camden, attended a police station on Thursday (January 11) following a police appeal.

He has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm and possession of a bladed article, and is remanded in custody to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court today (January 13).

Police say that on April 26 last year a 33-year-old man was watching a football match in a pub in Tollington Park at around 8.30pm when he got into an argument with a man who produced a knife and slashed his face from his left cheek to his lip.

Paramedics rushed him to a hospital where his condition was assessed as not life-threatening. The Metropolitan Police said the victim continues to receive treatment for the wound a year on.

They said the suspect left before the police arrived but a man has now been arrested and charged.

Officers have urged anyone with information to call the police on 101 quoting CAD 6799/26Apr.
