They fled the country in the wake of the attack but were tracked down and arrested under European Search Warrants.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Tate said: "This has been an extremely lengthy investigation that has required officers having to travel to Paris and Prague to execute the European Arrest Warrants and bring them back to the UK to face justice.

"It has been an incredibly difficult time for the victim, who has suffered not only life-changing injuries but has also had to endure what has been a protracted investigation. For this I would like to praise and thank him and I hope he is able to take some solace in knowing they are now being punished."

He added: "I hope this case highlights our commitment to bring offenders before the courts and provides reassurance to our communities that we will always take all appropriate action to achieve this."
