Teenagers jailed for race attack

THREE South Ockendon teenagers have been locked up after they launched a savage, unprovoked attack on a Bangladeshi pizza delivery man.

Twins Ryan and Rhys Griffiths, 18, and Jack Tansley, 19, were sentenced to 18 months in a young offenders’ institute after pleading guilty to racially aggravated assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Grant Liggan, 18, of Crofton Avenue, Stanford-le-Hope, who pleaded guilty to the offence at the earlier hearing, did not appear at court and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
