A Brixton man who shot bailiffs as they tried to evict him from his Brixton home has been jailed for 15 years.

Andrew Stephenson, 49, shot at a bailiff and housing association worker when they arrived with a locksmith at his Strathleven Road home on July 3 last year.

The unnamed bailiff was shot twice in the leg as he entered the property, and Norma Johnson, a worker from Metropolitan Housing, was shot in the knee after being chased into the street by  the gunman.

Detective Sergeant Paul Carruth said: “This was an appalling and excessively violent attack on innocent people, who were simply doing their job.”

Stephenson was convicted of the shooting in January.
