JURORS in a trial of a man accused of kicking a festival goer in the head like he was 'kicking a penalty' have retired to consider their verdict.

Tom Aldworth, of Miles East, Didcot, is currently on trial for one count of inflicting grievous bodily harm.

Prosecutors at Oxford Crown Court claim the 34-year-old kicked his victim Alan Lobb during a fight at Wallingford's Bunkfest music festival on September 2, 2017.

As the trial continued yesterday jurors heard closing arguments from prosecutors and defence teams before the case was summed up by presiding Judge Maria Lamb.

They were sent out to reach their verdicts at about 2pm yesterday.

During the trial the court has heard that the incident stemmed from an earlier altercation at a nearby pub.

This then led, prosecutors claim, to a brawl at the festival in which Aldworth ‘from a distance of about 10 yards’ kicked his victim ‘forcibly to the head.’

Jurors were told that eyewitnesses went on to describe the kick to Mr Lobb’s head as like ‘kicking a penalty’.

From the witness box Aldworth denied any wrong-doing and said that he had only struck the blow to stop the violence.

He told jurors that the fight at the festival centred around Mr Lobb and Aldworth's friend and said that Mr Lobb was the aggressor. The trial continues.
