Terrifying CCTV shows moment blind and deaf man pushed onto railway track by thugs


These horrifying pictures show the moment two twisted thugs pushed a blind and deaf man and his brother onto a busy railway track.

Daniel Webster, 23, and Niall Martin, 24, can be seen pushing their terrified victimGlyn Morrell, 31, onto the line during the late night attack.
Horrified rail staff at Chelmsford railway station had to put a block on trains using the main line through Essex fearing Mr Morrell could be killed.

Mr Morrell's younger brother, Joseph, was also pushed onto the track when he tried to intervene. A senior police officer described it as one of the most "appalling incidents" he has ever investigated.
At Chelmsford Crown Court, Webster pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm and actual bodily harm against both brothers and was jailed for 22 months.
Martin admitted actual bodily harm against Joseph Morrell and was jailed for nine months.
The horrific drama happened in February this year after Webster, of Coggeshall, and Martin of Colchester, approached the two brothers to ask about trains before a row broke out.
Mr Morrell, from Ipswich, was attacked on the platform whilst waiting for a train with his brother and a friend.

In the CCTV footage Joseph, 28, can be seen coming to the aid of his vulnerable sibling, only to be attacked in a horrifying assault which also saw him thrown onto the track by Webster.
Sickeningly, he was attacked again as he desperately tried to clamber to the safety of the platform.
Webster then threw Mr Morrell, who is registered blind and is profoundly deaf, onto the tracks before punching him in the face as he tried to climb back onto the platform.

 Judge David Turner QC said it had been a "disgraceful episode" and labelled the pair's actions "manifestly dangerous".
He said: "This is exactly the sort of thing that terrifies members of the travelling public late at night."
Speaking afterwards Detective Constable Alan Reed of British Transport Police said: "This is one of the most appalling incidents I have investigated.
"Webster and Martin showed a savage disregard for their victims, and one of the brothers is still suffering from the injuries sustained to his foot.
 "It is no exaggeration to say the brothers could have been killed after being thrown onto the tracks.
 "I would like to pay tribute to the victims, who have shown great dignity following what was a terrifying ordeal for them.

"I hope the sentence will provide them with some sense of closure, although in truth, the impact this has had on both of them is likely to remain with them for the rest of their lives."

The court heard on Wednesday that Mr Morrell spent six weeks on crutches and was off work for six months. He now walks with a limp and has been told the foot injury may take two years to heal and may need further surgery.
