Four men have been convicted of murdering a man whose body parts were discovered in waterways across North Lincolnshire.

Parts of the dismembered body of Adam Vincent, 33, formerly of Alexandra Road, Grimsby, were found at Tetney Lock last March.

Lee Griffiths, 43, and his sons, Luke, 19 and Thomas, 22, and Mark Jackson, 27, were found guilty of murder.

The trial at Sheffield Crown Court ran for 10 weeks.

The four men were also convicted of perverting the course of justice, along with a fifth man, Matthew Frow.

The jury is still deliberating over Frow, who was charged with murder. He denies the charge.

Severed head

Lee and Thomas Griffiths were also found guilty of conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

Frow had admitted the same charge.

The jury are still deliberating the same charge in respect of Luke Griffiths.

Mr Vincent's severed head was found in the River Ancholme, near Brigg, last June.

A sixth defendant Andrew Lusher, 43, of Welholme Road, Grimsby, was found not guilty of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.
