Torture attack brothers detained


Two brothers who tortured two young boys in an attack in South Yorkshire have been detained indefinitely.

Sheffield Crown Court heard how the pair, then aged 10 and 11, threatened to kill their nine-year-old and 11-year-old victims in Edlington.

The brothers, who admitted causing grievous bodily harm, were told they would serve a minimum of five years.

Danny Savage reports.
