“It’s the smallest things you take for granted every day that I can’t do. If you break a bone it can heal, but it’s different with a brain injury,” he said.

“Everything you can think of has gone. Basically, my life is finished.”

It is believed the victim was followed, possibly by five men, as he left The Anchor pub in Lower Guildford Road at 7.50pm on 26 March and then attacked.

Police officers are keen to speak to four men in connection with the incident.

One was wearing a white Under Armour t-shirt, blue jeans, dark baseball cap and has a brown goatee style beard; the second was wearing a chequered long-sleeved shirt, has a full, styled brown beard with brown slicked back hair, with bright coloured eyes; the third one was wearing a dark coloured Under Armour hat, green t-shirt, bald head with brown heavy stubble and the fourth man was wearing a dark coloured sign written or logoed hooded jumper and has messy brown hair with brown stubble.
