Two men who were convicted of plotting to rob and kill pop star Joss Stone have won appeals against the length of their sentences.
Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw, from Manchester, were found guilty of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob at a three-week trial last year. They drove to Miss Stone's home in mid-Devon with an arsenal of weapons to rob and kill her.
Bradshaw, 33, had his 18-year sentence cut to 10 years by three Court of Appeal judges in London.
Kevin Liverpool, 36, who was originally given a life sentence with a minimum term of 10 years and eight months, had his minimum reduced to six-and-a-half years.
