Video bodycam footage in which a 22-year-old man who was berserk and swinging two knives before being overpowered by police was shown to a judge.

John Wilson, of Deganwy Beach, Deganwy, was jailed for 14 months and warned by Judge Timothy Petts to put his life right while in prison otherwise he would be in trouble again and would have knife crime on his record if he got into trouble in the future.

The incident happened at Deganwy Beach on a Sunday night in August and a taser was pointed at Wilson before three officers brought him to the ground after shouting “Calm Down” repeatedly to him.

He pleaded guilty to affray and possession of knives and Ryan Rothwell, prosecuting, said when interviewed afterwards said he didn't remember anything.

Wilson had 14 previous convictions including a two year sentence for robbery in 2015.

Sarah Yates, defending, said Wilson was remorseful and wished to apologise to police officers and others who had seen what happened. He had a history of cannabis abuse and had mental health issues.

Passing sentence at Caernarfon crown court Judge Petts said a probation report had referred to a high risk of harm to others. He had two knives and no one knew what he was going to do with them. Although he had put them down at an early stage only custody could be justified.

He added : "Your behaviour on August 19 was frightening, you were unpredictable, emotional and screaming in a situation in which police had to call for back-up of more officers for assistance." Six and nine-inch knives were involved.
