Five men have been jailed for a collective total of 101 years for carrying out a violent burglary in Willerby.

The men, all from Merseyside, stole money, watches, jewellery and a Range Rover after beating and stabbing Hull Cars owner Chris Davidson and his friend Neil Collingham.

Mr Davidson and Mr Collingham were also gagged and bound with electrical cables during the March 9 attack on Great Gutter Lane.

The gang also stabbed Mr Davidson’s dog and threatened to kill his mother.

At Hull Crown Court on Monday, Daniel Jones, 26, David Llewellyn, 29, Mark Platt, 30, and John Tuffy, 28, received 22-year sentences after pleading guilty to aggravated burglary and wounding with intent.

Jamie Hayes, 30, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for aggravated burglary.

Mr Davidson spoke of his relief after the sentences were handed down.

“I am relieved beyond measure these men are behind bars,” he told the Hull Daily Mail.

“What they did was brutal and savage. It was terrifying. To torture another human being for the sake of money is something I find difficult to comprehend.”

Humberside Police Detective Constable Dan Brittain said: “The level of violence used by the men in this case was absolutely unnecessary.

“The perpetrators have now quite rightly been brought to justice and the public are much safer as a result of these violent offenders being sentenced to terms in prison.”
