A THUG who almost totally severed his victim’s hand with a 15in machete has been jailed for 12 years.
Jordan Hughes (pictured) lashed out after shouting at the man and his friends for ‘no apparent reason’ outside a McDonald’s on March 7 in Warrington, Cheshire.
The victim, who thought at first Hughes was holding an umbrella, put his arm up to defend himself.
He needed 12 hours of surgery to reattach the hand, which still lacks full function and causes him constant pain.
Hughes, 22, admitted wounding with intent at Liverpool crown court.
