Grimsby mosque attackers jailed for six years

Two men who threw petrol bombs at a mosque in Grimsby in response to the death of soldier Lee Rigby have been jailed for six years.

Gavin Humphries, 37, and Stuart Harness, 33, both of Dixon Avenue, Grimsby, admitted the attack on the Islamic Cultural Centre on 26 May in which no-one was injured.

In November, a third man, Daniel Cressey, 25, of New Holland, was found guilty of aiding and abetting the arson attack. He was also jailed for six years.

Harness and Humphries, both former soldiers, unwittingly recorded themselves making the bombs on cameras set up in Harness's home.

The pair were caught again on CCTV as they carried out the attack on the mosque.
