A MAN was attacked violently at an Inverkeithing pub, knocked to the ground and punched repeatedly.

The assailant was Liam Allport, 30, of Eggleston View, Darlington, who has appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on August 19 last year, at the Burgh Arms, High Street, Inverkeithing, he assaulted a man by punching him on the head, causing him to fall to the ground.

He then punched the man repeatedly on the head when he was down, to his injury.

He also admitted he kicked maliciously at windows at the bar, causing them to break.

Allport further admitted that on August 20, last year at Friary Gardens, Inverkeithing, he acted aggressively, shouted and swore at police officers.

Sheriff Francis Gill called for reports and Allport will return to court to be sentenced on November 2.
