    The pair met in an online chatroom
    An internet user has been found guilty of what police said was Britain's first "web-rage" attack.
    Paul Gibbons, 47, tracked down John Jones using details obtained online after the pair exchanged insults in an internet chatroom, a court heard.

    He travelled 70 miles to Mr Jones' home in Clacton, Essex, and beat him up with a pickaxe handle in December 2005.

    Gibbons, of Southwark, south London, admitted unlawful wounding and will be sentenced on 7 November.
