Two former bouncers who were involved in a "sickening" attack in Gravesend have had their sentences increase.

Denis Thompson, 36, of Malyons Road, Lewisham, was previously jailed for six years for grievous bodily harm with intent but will now serve between six and ten years.

And Alex Jetha, 27, of Vicarage Road, Strood, who was originally jailed on for five years and eight months after he was found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent and actual bodily harm at Maidstone Crown Court has had his sentence doubled to ten years.

The sentences were increased by three judges at the Court of Appeal on July 31 after it was ruled that the original sentences were 'unduly lenient.'

On November 11 2013 the pair, along with another man, attacked the two men hours after ejecting them from The Grove nightclub, in The Grove, Gravesend.

One of the victims was hit several times with the batons and also struck with a knife, which cut his ear so badly it had to be stitched back together.

The second victim was hit several times around the head before he managed to run away.
