A member of a teenage gang, who stabbed and nearly killed the husband of the Director of Public Prosecutions during a street mugging, was sentenced to eight years' custody at Knightsbridge Crown Court yesterday.

The 17-year-old youth, who was 15 at the time of the assault in May 1995, attacked 58-year-old John Mills with a butterfly knife, severing an artery in his abdomen and piercing his liver. Mr Mills managed to stagger 100 yards to his home in north London, where he collapsed into the arms of his wife Barbara.
