Ken Oliver was in intensive care for a week after the attack on his doorstep. A drunken thug who attacked a terminally-ill grandfather and kicked his head 'like a football' has walked free from court. Reece Kent, 19, repeatedly punched Ken Oliver in the head before kicking him on the floor after he mistakenly knocked on the 62-year-old's door at 3.30am. Cancer sufferer Mr Oliver - who has been given just three months to live - was left in a pool of blood on his doorstep with horrific injuries. He spent a week in intensive care following the assault, with bleeding on his brain. Reece admitted carrying out the unprovoked attack - which was filmed on a mobile phone by his friends.
