A man travelled from Wickford to Kent to attend a right-wing conference before becoming involved in a large brawl in a car park.

Paul Carbine was caught on camera throwing punches at various different members of an opposing group during the fracas.

The 33-year-old, of Meadow Lane, is one of four people to have been jailed for their involvement in the brawl as the right-wing group clashed opposition group members.

Carbine was sentenced to 12 months in prison after admitting violent disorder.

Another man, Dale Lutton, was jailed for attacking a man before realising they were supporting the same right-wing group - shaking hands when they realised their mistake.

The conference was held by right wing group Generation Identity and had previously been moved after a protest from leftist group Anti-Fa.

Maidstone Crown Court heard how the rival gangs acted like “football hooligans”- during clashes in Marks and Spencer car park.

Prosecutor Patrick Dennis said: “This was a wholly unsavoury, unnecessary and unlawful incident. They were acting like football hooligans.”

The conference had taken place on April 14 last year.

Lutton, of Northern Ireland, was jailed for 16 months after he was filmed joining in with the fighting as soon as it began, targeting one person in particular and throwing multiple punches at him.

Deirdre McTucker, 43 from Dublin, was jailed for 12 months after being found guilty of violent disorder at a trial in September.

She was filmed grabbing a woman by the hair before punching her repeatedly in the face.

Sebastian Seccombe, 20, of Consett, County Durham, was sentenced to ten months in a young offender institution after admitting violent disorder.

He kicked a member of the opposing group in the stomach before taking aim with a flying kick at others who were fighting. Det Sgt Dan Barker of Kent Police said: “The actions of these four people and others involved in fighting that day were completely unacceptable.

“Members of the public should be able to go about their daily business without having to witness such mindless acts of violence, as has been demonstrated by the sentences imposed by the judge in this case.

"All four now have plenty of time behind bars to consider whether the juvenile behaviour they displayed was really worth it.”
