Paul Gibbons beat John Jones with a pickaxe handle
A man has been jailed for more than two years after carrying out the UK's first "web-rage" attack on an internet user.
Paul Gibbons, 47, assaulted John Jones, 43, at his Essex home, after the pair exchanged insults in an internet chatroom, the Old Bailey heard.
Gibbons, of Bermondsey, south-east London, tracked down father-of-three Mr Jones to Clacton, from personal details he put online.
He was armed with a pickaxe handle and was with a man carrying a machete. Mr Jones was beaten and had his neck cut after going to the door of his home with a knife.
