Despite the victim not attempting to fight back, they continued to punch and kick him to the head and body.

The victim suffered severe bruising to his face and had to undergo surgery to his jaw after the attack aggravated a previous injury.

Wales and Aylott were both jailed for two years at Peterborough Crown Court. Wierzbowski was sentenced to 18 months.
