Two ex-soldiers who fire-bombed a mosque in revenge for the killing of soldier Lee Rigby were caught on CCTV preparing petrol bombs and throwing them at the building.
Stuart Harness and Gavin Humphries were shown in footage each carrying two home-made petrol bombs from Harness’s home in the town.
Grimsby Crown Court was shown footage from more cameras, which caught them later, launching the bombs at the doors of the Grimsby Islamic Cultural Centre, four days after Fusilier Rigby was killed outside Woolwich Barracks, in London, in May.
Two former soldiers who firebombed a mosque in Grimsby following the murder of soldier Lee Rigby have each been jailed for six years. Stuart Harness, 34, and Gavin Humphries, 37, made petrol bombs and threw them at the Grimsby Islamic Cultural Centre.
They were being filmed on CCTV cameras they thought were turned off. They were jailed by Judge Mark Bury at Hull Crown Court after admitting arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered at an earlier hearing.
