Father and son jailed over Gary Pocock's murder

A father and son who told the BBC how upset they were about the death of their friend have been jailed for life over his murder.

Matthew and Mark Terry, both of Grantham Road in Manor Park, London, were filmed by BBC South East Today last August while police investigated the murder of Gary Pocock.

The pair, along with Christopher James Bones, 21, of Dorothy Gardens, Dagenham, and Richie Zbrowski, 16, from Warden, Sheerness, were found guilty of his murder.

Mr Pocock had been beaten to death with baseball bats and left half naked on the beach in Leysdown, Kent. The attack followed allegations he had sexually assaulted a teenage girl.
