The brother of a vulnerable man, who along with his friend was beaten so badly they were unrecognisable, has hit out at the 11-year jail term handed to the killer.

Steven McBrine has just eight and a half years to serve of an 11-year tariff before he is eligible to apply for parole. He had a double murder charge reduced to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
