Furious dad 'challenged anyone for a fight' before breaking 'foolish' passer-by's nose

A furious dad asked ‘pretty much anyone’ for a fight before attacking a passer-by and leaving him with a broken nose. Paul Gresty, 45, could be heard screaming and shouting by his next-door neighbour whilst smashing up items within his flat.

Around 30 minutes later, on July 26 of last year, he was heard shouting at one of his upstairs neighbours telling him to ‘stay out of his business’, Minshull Street Crown Court heard. He then began asking ‘pretty much anyone for a fight’, John Richards, prosecuting said.

Gresty, of Oldham, continued asking around for a fight, before the victim walked past and ‘foolishly’ accepted his offer.

“The defendant, upon hearing that, ran downstairs and hit the victim in the face and knocked him to the floor before kicking him to his shoulder area,” Mr Richards said. “The defendant's son then pulled him away.”

A female neighbour, who had witnessed the commotion, came outside and performed CPR on the man. He was left with a broken nose and bruising and injuries to his ribs, the court heard.

Eurovision's craziest moments – riots, lesbian kisses and turkey called Dustin
Eurovision is back this weekend (Saturday May 14), with Italy playing host.Once dubbed by its much-missed late presenter Terry Wogan as an excuse to, "Have a good sneer at Johnny Foreigner and chuck things at the telly," there's no denying that the annual continental kitsch fest has, during the course of its 66-year history, excelled in dividing its audience.But, whether its return in 2022 presents an excuse to throw a lederhosen and Liebfraumilch party or is simply the ideal time to colour compartmentalise your sock drawer, you cant deny it's had some must-see moments over the years.From bearded ladies and gobbling glove puppets to toppling despots and drug-fuelled scandals, here are some of the craziest which have hit our screens.Eurovision entries have sparked a lot of things over the years, not least the overwhelming urge to grab your coat and head for the pub.But few will beat Portugal’s entry at the 1974 contest which actually signalled a political uprising when it was broadcast on the radio.The ballad E Depois do Adeus by singer Paulo de Carvalho acted as a prompt for the country's rebel generals to rally their troops against the authoritarian regime of the time.The coup became known as the Carnation Revolution, so called because protestors took to the streets to place flowers into the muzzles of soldiers' rifles.The lead singer of this Italian rock band, which won the contest in 2021, was suspected by some viewers of snorting cocaine during the grand finals.Damiano David appeared to have been caught on camera at one point hunched over a table and making a low sweeping motion with his head.

The group’s track ‘Stefania’ is an ode to powerful mothers.Speaking to NME this week, Psiuk explained how their taking part was a “huge responsibility”, given the ongoing war with Russia.“To represent Ukraine in the international arena is always a responsibility, but to represent it during the war is just the highest responsibility possible,” he said.“The song [‘Stefania’] was composed and dedicated to my mother, but after the war the song has acquired lots of nuances because a lot of people are perceiving it as if Ukraine is my mother,” said Psiuk.

Man Utd's worst 5 Premier League seasons as Brighton mauling confirms record-low total
Manchester United knew before their clash with Brighton & Hove Albion would make the 2021/22 season the club's worst since the inception of the Premier League in terms of points totals.The performance from the team in an abject 4-0 loss showed exactly why this team has managed to accrue such a meagre total.Erik ten Hag has been confirmed as the new manager from next season and while you could say the only way is up for this team after they reached a Premier League nadir, the Dutchman would have been concerned by so many aspects of the performance on the south coast on Saturday.United could still make it to 61 points if they win on the final day of the campaign at Crystal Palace, although that would leave them short of some of the worst efforts put together over a 38-game campaign.Here are the others that rival it...This season was always going to be a challenging one.After the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes filled the vacant position at Old Trafford and took charge of the champions. Is this the worst Manchester United team of the Premier League era? Let us know in the comments section below!However, Moyes missed out on a number of key transfer targets, ended up adding Marouane Fellaini in the summer and the team suffered badly, clearly lacking direction without the inspired leadership of Ferguson.Moyes was sacked before the end of the season when it was confirmed United could not qualify for the Champions League, triggering a managerial merry-go-round the club is still stuck on.The infamous Jose Mourinho third season.After finishing in second place the campaign before, there was an expectation that United would kick on to challenge for the Premier League.
