Three men have been found guilty of attempted murder after a shooting which left a man critically injured.

Jordan Smith, 22, of Surbiton, was handed a 31-year prison sentence at Winchester Crown Court.

Jordan Perry, 27, of Mitcham, London, and Ricardo Livingston-Wright, 31, of Brighton, were each jailed for 30 years.

The 34-year-old victim suffered what police described as a "life-changing head injury" in the attack on 13 February 2017.

Detectives previously said the incident was thought to "relate to the supply of drugs".

Following the sentencing, Det Ch Insp Dave Brown said the sentences were a warning to people involved in drug-dealing.

He said: "This incident was a particularly traumatic experience for Jay Sibley. Today justice has been served and I hope that Jay can put this incident behind him and move on with this life."
