A 24-year-old man who stabbed another man in a "sustained and persistent" attack has been jailed for five years.

The victim sustained two wounds to his head which required 17 staples after he was knifed coming to the aid of a female friend in October 2019.

Piaras Heatley - deemed to be a dangerous offender by both the Probation Board and Judge Stephen Fowler QC - was handed an extended custodial sentence of five years in jail followed by three years on licence.
