Aamir Siddiqi murder: Hitmen jailed for 40 years each

Two "staggeringly incompetent" hit men must serve a minimum of 40 years each in jail for stabbing to death an innocent student after they targeted the wrong house.

Aamir Siddiqi, 17, was attacked at his Cardiff home by Jason Richards, 38, and Ben Hope, 39, in April 2010.

The pair were paid £1,000 each to kill a different man on a nearby street.

Caroline Evans reports from Swansea Crown Court.
