Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil has been jailed for 27 months at a London court.

The 26-year-old has spent the best part of a year in Pentonville prison after pleading guilty to charges of grievous bodily harm and perverting the course of justice.

At Snaresbrook crown court today his sentence was handed down over the "vicious" attack upon an east London pub landlord in the summer of 2006.

Fielder-Civil and his friend Michael Brown have both admitted GBH charges over the attack upon Jamie King, 36, the owner of the Macbeths pub in Hoxton.

Following the attack the pair, along with Anthony Kelly and James Kennedy, tried to bribe Mr King with £200,000 and the promise of a holiday in Spain if he stopped the case from going to court.

The story emerged when Kelly and Kennedy went to a tabloid newspaper with the plot.

Winehouse, 24, who has battled with drug addictions and stints in rehab over the last year, was not in court to hear her husband's sentence.
