A MAN who attacked a clamper has been given 120 hours of community service.

Andrew Manning, 44, of Arborfield Close, Streatham Hill, was sentenced at Bexley Magistrates' Court on Tuesday to 120 hours of a community order to be carried out over a year.

He was found guilty of beating up a man who clamped his car outside Roxby House, Station Road, Sidcup, on February 7, at approximately 1.30pm.

Office workers who heard cries of 'help' went outside to stop the attack.

Manning was also charged with failure to surrender after not turning up to a court date.

This was after his trial had been postponed after he rang in sick.

He had pleaded not guilty but on July 22 was proved guilty in his absence.

Now he has to pay £100 compensation to the victim and £125 costs to the Crown Prosecution Service.
