A Kent woman and her lover who tried to kill her terminally ill husband in a series of murder plots have both been jailed for life.

Hayley Weatherall, Glen Pollard and his daughter Heather had all denied the charges. Heather Pollard was also jailed for life.

Ray Weatherall survived two attempted shootings and an attempt to kill him with an insulin overdose.

Three years ago Ray Weatherall was told he had terminal brain cancer.

But the tumour was not his deadliest enemy.

Today he left court after after seeing his cheating wife and her two accomplices jailed for life for three attempts at killing him.

Hayley Weatherall, her lover Glen Pollard and Pollard's teenage daughter Heather plotted to kill him with an insulin overdose, a failed shooting at Rainham in Kent - then a shooting at Sandwich Marina which he was lucky to survive.

The jury was shown x-rays of the gunshot wounds millimetres from the jugular vein.

Mr Weatherall was unaware of his wife's affair with Pollard, who he'd considered his best friend. And he had no idea the would-be killer with the hunting rifle was Pollard's daughter.

The trio were eventually trapped by incriminating text messages and records of internet research into how to murder and get away with it.

Mr Weatherall was given 18 months to live three years ago. He's been told his condition is stable. Police say finding out who was behind the multiple attempts on his life had a devastating impact.

Glen Pollard - aged 49 and described as the 'main instigator' - must serve at least 17 years.

33-year-old Hayley Weatherall and Heather Pollard - who's 19 - were given minimum terms of 15 years.
