    Two young men involved in a violent attack in a crowded McDonald's restaurant have had their sentences increased.

    Judges at the Court of Appeal in London ruled the original custodial terms imposed on Mohammed Gedi, 22, and Aiden St Louis, 19, were "unduly lenient".

    St Louis, who used a large knife in the incident in the fast food chain in Gravesend, Kent, had his sentence upped from six-and-a-half years to nine years.

    Gedi had his prison term increased from seven years to nine years and six months.

    The court heard an 18-year-old man was chased into the restaurant and stabbed a number of times, suffering serious injuries.

    More than 50 diners witnessed the attack.
