Three men left their friend in a coma after attacking him in a south Belfast flat. The 17-year-old victim was stripped naked, beaten unconsciou­s and left lifeless in the bath in May 2019.

Images and videos of the attack were circulated between their friends.

The victim suffered a bleed on the brain, a fractured nose, broken ribs and extensive swelling to his head and face. In January 2021, Geordie Brown, 20, Dean Clarke, 22, and Nathan McCrory, 20, were sentenced at Belfast Crown Court for causing grievous bodily harm with intent. They were each given eight-year sentences.
