Thieves jailed for stealing from blind busker in Bangor

Two men have been jailed for stealing cash from the guitar case of a blind busker.

A video taken by a passerby showed how the pair preyed on Chris Chadwick-Parnell, 23.

Alan Fothergill, 43, admitted theft and was jailed for 26 months while Gary Williams, 51, denied stealing from the musician outside a store in Bangor, Gwynedd, but was found guilty and sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Caernarfon Crown Court judge Huw Rees said it was "an appalling case".
