The family of victim Matthew Sheehan has issued the following statement: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“We would like to thank the Crown Prosecution Service, the… police and of course the witnesses that came forward.
“We have also had a lot of support from family and friends, especially Matt’s friends.
“We don’t know what the future holds for Matt and as his life has changed beyond recognition. It may be that he will never be able to interact with or enjoy his family and friends again.
“It is difficult to understand how someone could inflict such horrific injuries on another person, and when it is your own flesh and blood it has happened to it is even harder to deal with.
“It is now time to put all our energy into helping Matt as much as we can.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
