Man suf­fered run-ins with family be­fore

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Prolific Paedophile Jailed For Life -

As well as the stab wounds, Mr Bean suf­fered what was de­scribed to the court as “col­lat­eral dam­age” to his spleen and kid­neys.

He spent two months in hos­pi­tal and lost three-and-a-half stone in weight.

He told po­lice in his in­ter­view, made with him lay­ing on a sofa, that he had also suf­fered from chest in­fec­tions and could not lift his left arm be­cause of pos­si­ble nerve dam­age.

Mr Bean said that doctors were un­able to say if he would make a full re­cov­ery.

Asked about the bad-feel­ing be­tween him­self and the Bris­tows, he said the family would “start on him” ev­ery time they saw him.

He said there had been three oc­ca­sions in­volv­ing both male and fe­male family mem­bers in which he had been ver­bally abused, threat­ened with a knife and had a glass thrown at his car. How­ever, none of the in­ci­dents in­volved Paul Bris­tow.
