Police: Inheritance attack 'motivated by greed'

Two teenage girls have been sentenced for their part in a plot to kill their 89-year-old grandfather for his inheritance.

He was attacked with bricks outside his home.

Police became suspicious of the nature of the elderly man's injuries which the family said were caused by a fall.

DS Bryan Carter of Hampshire Police said "this was an offence motivated by greed and committed against a vulnerable elderly male".
