TWO broth­ers have been spared jail over an in­ci­dent in which a Tesco worker was racially abused and a Stan­ley knife pulled on a shop­per.

Max­imil­lian New­combe, 20, and his brother To­bias, 18, launched a racist tirade at a store worker at Hi­bel Road who asked them to leave, a court heard.

When cus­tomer Cal­lum McKinstry in­ter­vened, the broth­ers turned on him, mag­is­trates were told. To­bias New­combe then left the shop and re­turned with a Stan­ley knife, threat­en­ing to stab him, the hear­ing was told.

Mag­is­trates heard the broth­ers were sub­jected to a ‘reign of ter­ror’ by their adop­tive mother Dr Jill New­combeBu­ley at their for­mer home in Prest­bury. New­combe-Bu­ley was jailed for four years in 2011 af­ter she ad­mit­ted child cru­elty, the hear­ing was told.
