Two ex-soldiers who firebombed a mosque four days after the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby have each been jailed for six years.

Gavin Humphries, 37, and Stuart Harness, 33, admitted the attack on the Islamic Cultural Centre in Grimsby.

No-one was hurt in the attack in May, Hull Crown Court heard.

A third man, Daniel Cressey, 25, of New Holland, was found guilty last month of aiding and abetting the pair. He was also jailed for six years.

Humphries and Harness were arrested on the day of the attack, 26 May, and pleaded guilty to arson at Grimsby Crown Court two days later.

They were both remanded in custody until the conclusion of Cressey’s trial.

“Crime of violence”

Cressey had driven the pair to the mosque in Weelsby Road but did not take part in the attack, four days after Fusilier Rigby was killed outside Woolwich Barracks in London.

Humphries and Harness, both former soldiers of Dixon Avenue, Grimsby, unwittingly recorded themselves making the bombs on cameras set up in Harness’s home. READ MORE
