Life - well, some time anyway

It's nice to hear that this charming lot have been put away. It's not clear for how long.

A gang of armed robbers have been jailed for life for kidnapping people off the streets and subjecting them to "sadistic and brutal violence".

More than a dozen pedestrians and motorists in London were beaten and stripped of their valuables.

The court heard they cruised London at night armed with guns, knives and baseball bats looking for victims.

In the dock were: Jamaican national Robert Lincoln, 18, from Barking, east London; Rwandan Sofian Majera, 22, from nearby Dagenham; and Portuguese national Pedro Frota, 19, also from Barking.

Also before the court was the only gang member to avoid a life sentence.

Frota's older brother Louis, 22, got four-and-a-half years for his lesser role.

All four defendants, who have previous convictions, face deportation after their sentences have been served.

I'm very glad to hear it.
