Two men are facing several years behind bars after being found guilty of attacking a father and son at a home in Gislingham.

Aidan Talbot and Phillip Jolly were jailed for a combined total of more than 20 years at Ipswich Crown Court today over the attack, which happened in the early hours of March 11 last year.

The pair were convicted of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at an earlier hearing but were sentenced by a judge today.

Wearing masks, the two men attacked a man in his 30s with what was thought to be a bat and a metal object.

The victim’s father – a man in his 60s – was also injured in the attack.
