Gosport MP welcomes extended sentence

The priority in this case has been to seek justice for Andrew Toseland and his family, whose lives have all been devastated by this horrific attack in which he suffered a brain injury so severe that he will require 24 hour care for the rest of his life. The Court of Appeal's decision to increase the sentence sends out a firm message that brutal behaviour of this nature is not acceptable and will be punished.
