Two men who carried out a knife attack on a drink-driver who crashed a car and left an eight-year-old boy dead have been jailed.

Corby Clark, 24, and Andrew Henderson, 44, attacked David Jones after he was released from jail.

Jones lost control of a car on a bend in Aberdeen in October 2003. Passenger Stephan Henderson died.

Henderson was jailed for three years, and Clark for two years and three months.

At Aberdeen Sheriff Court, they admitted the attack.

Fiscal depute Anne MacDonald said of the original crash victim: "The child was the son of Mr Henderson's partner at that time."

Sheriff Edward Savage described the case as an "extremely serious offence" and said he was satisfied that a custodial sentence was inevitable.
