This is the sickening moment two brothers committed an unspeakable Christmas Day crime that shocked the nation.

Scott and John Barrett cornered a defenceless 89-year-old man at a cash machine and stole £200 he was withdrawing to give away as Christmas presents.

The pair admitted their crime and were jailed at Hull Crown Court in January for taking cash from the pensioner, now 90, outside Sainsbury's in Hull on Christmas Day.

Back in January, Scott Barrett was sentenced to 18 months for the theft and a further two 12 weeks for breaching a suspended sentence, while his brother was jailed for 18 months, HullLive reported.

The incident shocked the city, and provoked an outpouring of generosity as cash and food were donated to the victim and his family.

His relatives said they were "overwhelmed" by the public's kindness.
