Wimbledon lecturer attack: Burglars jailed

Four burglars who took part in a raid which left a lecturer "unrecognisable" have been jailed.

Paul Kohler, 55, needed facial reconstruction surgery after the attack in Kings Road, Wimbledon, in August last year.

Mariusz Tomaszewski, 32, and Pawel Honc, 24, received 19 years each after admitting causing grievous bodily harm with intent and aggravated burglary.

Oskar Pawlowicz, 30, and Dawid Tychon, 29, who admitted aggravated burglary, were sentenced to 13 years each.

Giving his reaction to the BBC's Tim Willcox, Mr Kohler said: "I feel vindicated, but I don't want to be vindictive about it. They've had a deservedly long sentence."
