[A] CHEF has been sentenced by a judge after a row between two Lake District hotel colleagues boiled over into violence.

Carlisle Crown Court heard how commis chef Marius Jacota, 24, lashed out during a kitchen bust-up with sous-chef Robert McKillop.

This occurred at the Castle Inn Hotel, Bassenthwaite, near Keswick, on 10th April.

While being assaulted and pinned against a work bench, Jacota grabbed a metal knife-sharpener and struck out with the black-handled object in self-defence until he was released.

But when 6ft 3in Mr McKillop then fell on to his haunches, the 5ft 8in tall commis chef delivered an illegal kick to his co-worker’s stomach.

When he appeared before Recorder Philip Grundy today (MON), Jacota admitted a charge of assault, occasioning actual bodily harm.

A man of previous good character, he was given an 18-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £300 court costs.

Jacota, whose address was given as Lodore Falls Hotel, Borrowdale, was told by Recorder Grundy he had been guilty of a “totally unnecessary act”.
