Report: Two men found guilty of schoolboy murder

Two bungling hitmen have been found guilty of murdering a schoolboy when they went to the wrong house to carry out a contract killing.

Ben Hope and Jason Richards were each paid £1,000 to kill a middle aged family man in a row about an alleged debt.

Instead, high on drugs, they took the life of seventeen year old Aamir Siddiqi. They stabbed him to death and also knifed his frantic parents as they tried to save the teenager's life.

David Wood reports on today's verdict.
