A WEST Norfolk man today pleaded guilty to attacking his neighbour with a machete.
Appearing at Norwich Crown Court, Paul Sanderson, 44, of Tower Road, Hilgay, admitted causing Wayne Peckham grievous bodily harm with intent.
Emergency services were called to the scene in Manby Close in the village, near Downham Market, at around 3.15pm on Saturday July 10.
Mr Peckham sustained a fractured skull and head and hand injuries in the unprovoked attack while he enjoyed a barbeque with friends, having been approached by Sanderson about his garden waste.
Police armed response units, helicopter and dog units were deployed but Sanderson fled the scene. He later handed himself in at a local police station.
