A thug has been jailed after he smashed a glass into a man’s face and threw chairs at him in a Central London restaurant. 

The victim was on his way to the cloakroom at a restaurant on New Change Passage, near St Paul’s Cathedral, when Tauream Smith-Sharp attacked him. 

The glass wounded the victim’s right eye, leaving him permanently blind in that eye. 

Smith-Sharp, 28, of Muirfield Road in Watford, was arrested after the incident – which took place at around 11.40pm on October 14, 2021. 

He was found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent and affray at Inner London Crown Court. 

At the same court he was given a six year and nine month prison sentence.
