Eddie Hindle's attackers jailed for a total of 14 years
THE vicious thugs who robbed 72-year-old Grimsby pensioner Eddie Hindle have been jailed.
Kristian Whyte, 27, and Jamie Ford, 32, appeared before Grimsby Crown Court this morning.
As reported, the pair stole jewellery from Mr Hindle and viciously beat him in July last year.
He was left with severe facial bruises and injuries to his wrists.
Whyte, who was found guilty following a trial in December, has been locked up for eight years, while Ford, who pleaded guilty, has been sentenced to six years.
