A Merseyside man has been jailed for nine years after admitting wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm following his extradition from the Netherlands.

James Taylor, 34, was arrested in Amsterdam in July following a knife attack on a man in Liverpool.

He was wanted after Lee Siner, 26, was stabbed at Kimos restaurant on Myrtle Street in the city on 1 October 2010.

Taylor was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court to nine years in prison.

He previously pleaded guilty to possession of an offensive weapon.

In December 2011, Anthony Richardson, 34, from Liverpool, was sentenced to eight years and four months in prison at Liverpool Crown Court for wounding with intent in relation to the attack on Mr Siner.
