Two days later on February 21, Martin robbed a taxi driver in Chedworth Close, Warndon, whilst threatening him with a screwdriver. He stole the driver's cash and mobile phone. Jauncey was also present at the time of the offence.

Both men were found guilty on 17 September last year, following a trial at Worcester Crown Court. They have been in custody since their conviction.

Daniel Martin was today sentenced to 7.5 years with a five year extended licence, and Tommy Lee Jauncey was given a six year sentence.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Grant Lawrence from West Mercia Police, said: "Both men showed complete disregard for the law in these offences, and I hope this result demonstrates we will not tolerate violent crime within our communities.

"We welcome today's result and hope it will enable the victims to feel some sense of closure after their ordeals."
