Two men who wore masks as they launched an attack on a father and son in a Suffolk village have been jailed for a total of more than 20 years.

Police were called to Gislingham near Eye on Saturday 11 March 2016 after a man in his 30s and his father were injured in the attack.

They both needed hospital treatment after being with what's described as a bat and a metal object.

Aidan Talbot and Phillip Jolly appeared at Ipswich Crown Court for sentencing after a jury found them guilty at a previous hearing of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Last month Phillip Jolly, aged 24 and of Broadfields Close in Gislingham, was found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. He was today jailed for nine and a half years.

Aidan Talbot, aged 25 and of Cranley Road in Eye, was found guilty of one offence of unlawful wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and one offence of unlawful wounding. He was also sentenced today and received a jail term of 11 years and three years’ imprisonment for these offences, both to run concurrently.

The Crown Court had previously found both men, along with a third man, not guilty of conspiracy to inflict grievous bodily harm and committing aggravated burglary.
