Abersychan airgun road rage attacker Lewis Sims jailed

A teenager who pointed an airgun at a couple during a road rage attack has been jailed.

Lewis Sims, 19, of Abersychan, confronted Gareth Oram and his partner in their car in Torfaen while their children "screamed hysterically".

He threatened to kill Mr Oram in what was called "an absolutely stupid act".

At Newport Crown Court on Wednesday Judge Philip Richards said he hoped the 12-month sentence would stop others from doing the same thing.

Paul Heaney reports.
