Scott Vineer attack: Victim's family criticise Ryan Craig's sentence

The family of an autistic teenager who almost died in a brutal beating has criticised the sentence handed down to his attacker.

Scott Vineer was discovered with severe head injuries behind a disused furniture store in Lisburn, County Antrim, in 2012.

Ryan Craig was originally charged with attempting to murder Mr Vineer, but has now been jailed for five years after pleading guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent instead.

Lisa McAlister reports.
