A son who beat up his own father at his parents' wedding vows renewal celebration after he was confronted about taking cocaine has been spared jail.

Ian and Mandy Shorey had been marking their 30th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows at the Dudsbury Golf Club in Ferndown, Dorset, on May 6.

He repeatedly punched Mr Shorey in the face and chest and had to be pulled off by shocked wedding guests.
